February 2017 Tips and Tricks

Add a bitmap symbol to the toolbox
I want to use a picture I have as a symbol on the schedule. How do I go about doing this?

HTML Publishing – need a master schedule with sub schedules
I’m generating HTML tiered hierarchy from a Master Schedule for 4 sub-schedules. Each sub-schedule has a summary bar, level 1, and some level 2 tasks. The main HTML output of Master shows only the Summary bars. Clicking a summary bar takes me to the sub-schedule. (Expected behavior) What I want is to control how many task levels are displayed on the HTML Master in the tiered output. For example, I would like HTML Master to show Summary and all Level 1 tasks, rather than just the Summarybar for each sub schedule. Is this setup possible?

Center vertical connection on a bar
I need to connect a symbol from one row to the center of a bar on another row. It looks like vertical connectors only go from symbol to symbol. Is there any way to show the connector hitting the middle of a bar?

Date heading only shows letter for part of the heading
My date heading shows some months with the full name and others with an abbreviation. Is there a way to make it consistent?

Export from Primavera
I would like to import from Primavera. Is there anything special I need to do to generate the XML files which Milestones can use?

Browse templates without opening
Is there a way to look through the sample templates or search them and get a preview without opening every single one to see if they’re what I want?

Refresh from multiple Primavera XML schedules
I have several Primavera schedules and would like to build a Milestones Professional schedule which I can later update when the Primavera dates change. What steps should I follow?
