Decouple Milestones from Releases

Status : Accepted
over 1 year ago

Milestones are intended to make it easy to see and report on progress by providing an easy filter for multiple items -- and they work really well when Features are planned to be released in the same Release.

However, we have features that we develop which we know will not be deployed to production in the current Release timeframe -- they'll be released in the next one.  This stops us from using Milestones and we have to use a UDF instead.

If Milestones were decoupled form Releases, then we wouldn't need this duplicate UDF and we would be able to take advantage of the good reporting (including being able to use the Outlook plugin and associated Release report) that Milestones are intended to provide.
