include ways to create events and milestones in the calendar
Events like meetings are an important part of getting things done and therefore setting them up should be facilitated through Teambox. As for milestones, these provide teams with a sense of achievement and help measure performance and should, therefore, be part of Teambox too.
Am requesting this feature which has already been mentioned in the support area (http://help.teambox.com/discussions/questions/218-how-do-i-or-how-can-i). For my client (who's already keen on TB) it's a deal breaker so hope there is support here from other users!

When considering this one, Teambox people, please look for all the different 'ideas' that basically mean the same thing. The search engine here only brings up one result for 'milestone'; there is more than one.
Events & Meetings are crucial for my plans for Teambox. Our company has 5 different partners who all have differing levels of computer knowledge, use and experience. So all of use diiferent platforms. Temabox appeals to me, for its ease and simplicity...but its almost baffling that we can not simply set Events, Trips, Meetinsg etc... on the calendar. Yes, I will have my iCal linked, but I would like to train my partners to just get in the habit of using Teambox for communications.
Being able to add milestones to Gantt charts would be very helpful so that when you present the project plan to others they can easily see how these milestones fit.
