How to get started With Asana Milestones | Product guide

Milestones are available for all Premium, Business, and Enterprise customers.

Milestones mark specific points in time along a project timeline to track major progress points that must be reached to achieve success. In Asana, they exist as a new task type. This means any task that's being tracked in a project can now be marked as a Milestone.
