I would like to keep all the labels of my gantt chart on the outside of the chart, but would like to add an extra note (the date) to a milestone which should be placed in the chart next to the milestone. As seen in the picture I have attached, I would like the extra note to be placed where I have drawn the blue line.

Thanks in Advance enter image description here

    Welcome to TeX.SE. You've gotten an answer, but for future questions, consider giving us a minimal working example that you used to create this figure. That gives us something to start from.

There is the inline keyword provided as an optional argument to \ganttmilestone which does exactly what you need. Here is a short standalone example that demonstrates how to modify the label position + rendering style. See pgfgantt.pdf (p.26) for all the details and more examples.

pgfgantt example chart with two milestones with inline labels in the same row

    vgrid={*{2}{gray!10}, {gray!50}},
    time slot format=isodate,
    time slot unit=month,
    milestone inline label node/.append style={left=2ex,fill=white,fill opacity=.75,text opacity=1},
    flip/.style={milestone inline label node/.append style={right=2ex}},
    milestone/.append style={draw=none,fill=blue},
    milestone label font=\normalfont,

  \gantttitlecalendar{year} \\
  \ganttmilestone[inline,flip]{label on the right}{2020-05-15}
  \ganttmilestone[inline]{label on the left}{2021-10-31}
