For example, I'm working on some development that has 3 phases. I would like to group tasks under each phase (like a milestone) but still have the ability to set dates, labels etc which seems to be missing with subtasks. Any ideas on how I can use the project - task relationship to group tasks together?
In my role, I have anywhere from 50-100 projects going on at one time (project = anything with more than one next action step). So I want to organize them well while still maintaining dates and other actions. It would be tough to have each milestone set as its own project (Project 1 - Phase 1, Project 1 - Phase 2, etc) since my project list would get huge. But the subtasks seem to only be good as a checklist and not for maintaining due dates and ownership, therefore I don't think they'll work for a milestone or task grouper.
