To create activities and milestones, proceed as follows:
The InLoox project plan consists of the planning list on the left, where you see the two fields Info and Name when you first open the InLoox planning, and the Gantt-Chart in the calendar view on the right.
Click on the tab Edit. Then click on New Activity or New Milestone to create one of these new planning elements. You can also use the short cuts Ctrl+N (or Cmd+N) for a new activity or Ctrl+M (or Cmd+M) for a new milestone.
The new planning elements are visualized in the Gantt-Chart. Activities are shown as bars and milestones are diamond shaped. If you want to create a new milestone:
If you want to create a new activity, do the same, only click on New Activity in the ribbon or press Ctrl+N.
ATTENTION: If you do not schedule these newly created planning elements (i.e. you have not set a start and/or end date) right away, InLoox will use the creation date of the project for milestones. Activities will also start at the creation date of the project and will be given a duration of one day (with a default setting of 8 work hours).
When planning element’s start date lies in the past, they are all highlighted in red and are marked as overdue by the symbol in the info column.
