Group Level Milestone - Filter out sub milestones
Problem to solve
Too many milestones In a medium sized organization (like GitLab) where there are a few hundred people using GitLab, we have a wild proliferation of Milestones.
930 milestones at https://gitlab.com/groups/gitlab-com/-/milestones
This is a raw list of ALL the subordinate milestones.
As a user, it’s a useless view.
Need to be able to filter OUT the subordinate milestones and just see the milestones that are defined at this level Perhaps sorted or ordered by level (all the milestones from each sub group/project together)
Most likely leadership trying to manage work and strategy at the group level - Product manger and Development leaders and above
Personas are described at https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/marketing/product-marketing/roles-personas/
It is impossible to manage group level milestones with this view. It's not really viable as is.
Update the view to highlight and show the GROUP level milestones. Either
- add a check box to show ALL milestones and default the view to show just those defined at this level and/or
- Organize the list so it's sorted by where the milestone is defined and how close it is to this level. How often would a user care about a milestone defined 3, 4 or 5 subgroups lower in the organization?
