Default Display an additional date column in Gantt chart

Hello,

I am new to MS Project, and I need help with displaying an additional date column in the Gantt chart.

I have the Start Date and Finish date and one additional column which is the Schedule date. I could get the bars to display for the start and finish dates, but now I want to display the Schedule date too, which could be somewhere within the range of start & finish dates or in the future.

This is for about 200 rows of data, which represents 200 projects. The main purpose is to see the start, finish and the schedule dates for each project.

I tried adding this Schedule date as a milestone through Bar styles, but its not displaying anything.

Thanks!

Here is a screenshot of what I have. The schedule date column needs to be represented in the Gantt Chart.

Not too sure exactly what yuo mean here. the start date (as shown in the column) is the scheduled start date- or the date the task is due to start.
I think you mean that you want to show the actual start date, which you will only know after the task has started. this is available as the standard column "actual start date".

If yiu meant something else, please post back with a bit more detail

Thanks for looking into this!
Here each task represents a Request item. The start date and end date represent the expected start and end of the request. The schedule date is something which represents a Ready to be scheduled date, which can fall anywhere between the start and end date, or after the end date too. I just need to represent the Schedule date using like a line, or milestone mark in the Gantt chart for each task.

Thanks!

I finally solved the issue, I set the Ready to Schedule date as a deadline instead of a milestone. I did not set the milestone right the first time. Thanks!
