Timeline View offers you an alternative visual representation of your projects and tasks:
You can easily re-schedule projects and tasks in Timeline by dragging or resizing them.
Moving a parent task or its deadline will also move the dependent sub-tasks (to turn this off, contact our support). Moving a project moves all its tasks as well, making re-scheduling in Timeline a breeze.
The filters on the top allow you to adjust your Timeline, the most important being the date range filter:
Only the projects that have an least one day between their start date and deadline (if any) within the selected range will be displayed.
You can also filter by a project to separate it in the Timeline, or you can filter by assigned team members and tags.
There are four view modes available: daily wide (good for very short projects), daily, weekly and monthly (good for long projects):
Each view has its own default date range and will remember the range you will set for it.
There is also a filter to hide closed projects and tasks:
Left panel contains the compact list of projects and tasks. As in the main view, you can customize the columns and resize this panel:
You can also hide this panel using the button in the toolbar.
You can also add new projects and tasks directly in Timeline:
You can just enter the name to quickly create a project/task...
... or you can also click on the "details" button to open the full form:
You can re-open this form later to edit projects and tasks fields. Just use the mouse rollover on a project/task in the Timeline — it will show a small info window with the "Details" button:
Or you can just use the selected project/task menu in the left panel:
The global Timeline menu is located on the top right and offers several useful options:
For example, you can control if you want to show long project/task names outside their box or not:
You can also show or hide the projects/tasks teams in Timeline:
The whole Timeline, including the left panel (if not hidden) can also be printed out or exported into a file (image or PDF):
Timeline is a powerful view and can help you visualize, re-schedule and manage your projects and tasks.
