To represent upfront vesting, enter 0 month duration for the first tranche. The percentage in this 0-month tranche will vest on the vesting start date.

Milestone-based vesting

Equity awards with milestone-based vesting, also known as performance-based vesting, are set to vest at the occurrence of a certain event. For example, the Chief Revenue Officer's stock options vest 100% when the company's revenue reaches $1,000,000. The milestone-based vesting feature will be released in November 2021.
