TestLink - Milestones


Milestones are associated with the project and is one of the best ways to track the progress and timeline. It is similar to the small targets in a project. A milestone can be an important target such as a planned public software release, an internal test version, a new beta release for an important customer, etc.

Once stakeholders add milestones to TestLink, the users can assign test runs to specific milestones. It helps to track the milestone’s progress separately. Especially, if multiple milestones are in progress in parallel or if the users have many test runs active at the same time.
