How well does the app integrate with Salesforce?
Milestones PM+ is 100% native to Salesforce, so you can integrate most any Salesforce object (standard or custom) with our app. For example, if you want to create a project from an opportunity, you can do this in Milestones PM+.
What do I get with the free version of Milestones PM+?
You get basic program, project, milestone, task, risk management, issue management, calendar, and gantt functionality in Milestones PM+. You can also create project templates (with some limitations) and use them to create new projects. There is summary tab that will allow you to search for projects or view a dashboard of each project. If you go with our support plan, we can help you to implement more advanced configurations and customizations such as setting up Milestones PM+ to use our built in trigger to automatically generate a project from a template or customizing the gantt chart. Our Premium Edition unlocks all the premium features that the free version doesn't have.
What is your release process?
Does your app work for external users?
Yes! Please contact Passage Technology to learn more about enabling this functionality for your org.
How does Resource Assignment allow non-Salesforce users to update their tasks?
Resource assignment does not allow non-Salesforce users to update their tasks simply by installing MPM+. In order for non-Salesforce users to have the ability to update data in Salesforce, they will need to be assigned to a Salesforce license. There are various licenses available to purchase and Passage Technology can help you to work with your Salesforce Account Executive (AE) to identify the right licenses.
Does Passage Technology own Milestones PM?
No. Milestones PM is a Salesforce Labs-owned application.
What is the difference between Milestones PM+ and Milestones PM?
Milestones PM is an unmanaged package by Salesforce Labs. Milestones PM+, by Passage Technology, is a managed package on the Salesforce AppExchange. Because we are keeping the code up to date, you don’t have to worry about new Salesforce releases or other changes in your org ‘breaking’ the code.
