Adding Project Milestones to your calendar helps you to keep track of your project's progress. We've made it easy to add your Visually Project Milestones to the calendar you use the most.

Outlook or Google Calendar

After selecting Add to Outlook Calendar or Add to Google Calendar, you'll need to grant the Project Centre permission to View and Manage your calendar. Don't worry! This is only so we can add the Project Milestones and we will not have access to adjust any other appointments or settings. 

 

                     

 

Your Project Milestones will then show up in your Google or Outlook Calendar as events on the day they are due. Specific times will not be indicated, and your default calendar settings will be applied.

For a seamless experience, we recommend updating the following subscription properties:

  • Change the calendar Name to reflect the Visually Project.
  • Update the Location to On My Mac.
  • Set Auto Refresh to Every hour. This will help you to stay up-to-date with the most recent timeline changes.
