Create a recurring milestone in Microsoft Project

Written by Jane Hames

If you are a Microsoft Project user, you might be using recurring tasks to add monthly stakeholder events or other regular activities. It’s useful to remember that recurring tasks, don’t actually have to be tasks with durations, resources and costs.

I have found recurring tasks useful when I’ve needed to create regular reminders rather than full-on tasks. Here’s what you can do to create a recurring milestone in Microsoft Project:

  1. On a task table, click on the row you want to add a recurring milestone to.
  2. From the Task tab, click on the arrow below the task button.
  3. recurring milestone in microsoft project

  4. Select Recurring task.
  5. recurring milestone in microsoft project

  6. Add the milestone name and enter the duration as zero. Entering zero, will make it a milestone.

  8. Double click on an individual milestone to rename it or make other changes to that occurrence.
