Using the IT Workspace Milestones list effectively
Our small application development group is trying out the IT Workspace template. We are trying to create an effective Milestones list and are hoping others might share their approach to this list. Our problem is that with a number of projects being worked on at once this creates quite a long list of Milestones (as there are a number of Milestones for each project). This makes the dropdown list for Milestones (when creating a new Task) quite lengthy! It would be great if there was some way to associate those Milestones with specific projects such that when you are on page /Projects/DisplayForms.aspx and your Related Task webpart is displayed and you create a task from there, that the Milestones list would ONLY show milestones related to that project. There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.
