IMPORTANT: Currently, Timelines are in Early Access trials and are not available to the public just yet. Patches, updates, and core functionality changes to timelines may be made without notice, and this document may not be updated in real-time for each change made.
If you would like to try these out, simply open a ticket and we would be more than happy to give you early access!
Timelines are used to keep track of big picture tasks in a Gantt chart view. Timelines are great for creating complex production schedules to share with your team.
Creating a Timeline #
To create a timeline, simply head over to a project and go to the Timelines tab, then click the New button. You will be prompted to enter a name for the timeline, as well as timezone, start and end times, etc.
Once you have created a timeline, you can now begin the process of adding rows to it. There are 2 different types of rows… Rows, and tasks.
Rows will appear in the timeline as a single row, however if you would like multiple timeline items in a single row, you can do this by adding a task to a row (see Tasks below).
To create a task, simply click the Add Task button in the lower right corner of the day you would like to add the task to. This will open a modal that will let you enter the task’s details such as name, description, start and end times, as well as a color.
There are 2 ways to edit a task:
- Click on the row’s timeline bar.
- Click on the row’s name in the left most column, then click Edit.
As outlined above, tasks can be added to rows to create multiple timeline items in a single row.
There are 2 different ways of adding tasks:
- Click on the name of an existing row, then select Add Task.
- To quick-add, hover over an empty part of a row’s row and click directly underneath the time you would like to add a task. This will automatically open the New Task modal with the Starts At time pre-set to the time you clicked under.
Editing tasks is done by clicking on the task’s timeline bar.
Reordering Rows #
You can reorder rows by hovering over a row’s name and selecting Move Up or Move Down.
