Milestones

I'm new to Upwork and have a client that has accepted a detailed proposal (in a word doc) I emailed to her after I had submitted a simpler proposal on Upwork and we did a phone interview.  She wants me to set up milestones in the project so she can approve but I can't see where I'm able to do this.  I can modify the terms but it only allows me to change the overall project cost, not set up milestones and details of each. 

 

Am I missing something or does she need to do this? 


Thanks!

I'm also new but from my previous projects, I know that the milestones can be set by your client once he/she makes the offer. I'm not sure about this, but I think I have read somewhere in the forum that milestones can not be set nor be modified by the freelancer, only by the client. The terms of your proposal can be changed if you already came to an agreement about the price and milestones. When the client sends you an offer, she can set each milestone and price.

Yanet is right--you cannot set up milestones. Only the client can do that.
