If you love Milestones, you probably have noticed that, if you click on the Edit menu on a Milestone, from its Workboard, like in this screenshot:
This is the edit page of a Milestone (see that there is not the Name text field):
And this is the edit page of a normal Column instead:
So, to edit the name of a Milestone, at the moment, users must know the internal difference between normal Columns and Milestones, to then understand that a Milestone is handled as a Project, and so, its name must be changed from the Project edit form.
Anyway, changing a Milestone column takes a lot of steps:
- click on the Milestone name
- click on Manage
- click on Edit Details
- change the name
TL;DR this Task is just about trying to have more visual uniformity in a Workboard, and so, an user should be able to rename a Milestone, just as quickly as any other normal Column (if the user has permissions to do soq).
When the user is on a Workboard, trying to edit a Milestone; instead of showing just the Points, we could show also a "Milestone Name" field, like in this proposed solution:
(As proof of concept I'm also showing that the Milestone name validation must be functional ↑)
Please compare the new Milestone edit form above, with the already-existing Column edit form below:
This is in short the proposed change for a Milestone:
