As part of our efforts to improve user experience, we now introduce Timeline. This new view displays the key elements of your projects to provide you and your team with a clear and full overview. Plan and share your work towards success with this new feature.
What Is Timeline Useful for?
The new Timeline view makes everyone aware of the work plan. Take a look at these use cases and get inspired:
Use Timeline to Plan a Product Launch
You can map out a product launch to keep everyone involved on the same page. Create a task for each key stage of the process, such as development, testing, marketing strategy and distribution. Give each a start and due date, and assign them to the corresponding team members. Having set up the stages, you will have a clearer view of the process to make adjustments and plan everything before even starting to develop the new product.
Use Timeline to Plan an Event
You might find this view useful if you need to plan an event a few months in advance. Create an event plan that includes tasks for every key aspect, such as booking the venue, hiring the caterer and DJ, and distributing invitations, among other things. Another important thing to take care of is planning for staffing. Smaller, private events of up to 50 people are definitely easier to handle. But if you’re dealing with a big venue with a lot of guests and activities, you might benefit from staff scheduling software for events. Additionally, set the duration and due date of each task to help you stay organized and visualize everything, ensuring that nothing gets overlooked.
Use Timeline to Enhance Project Management
It helps you visualize a project’s duration and key tasks by priority. Additionally, it allows you to identify overlaps and bottlenecks, as well as monitor workload by identifying who is assigned to which task. This becomes a powerful tool for a Project Manager who wants to stay on top of everything and ace any kind of project, such as email marketing for SaaS products or a long-term social media strategy, to name a few.
How to Use Timeline
Timeline [beta] lets you schedule all tasks or select which milestones you want to display. Only the tasks you select will appear on your timeline.
Set to show a weekly, monthly or yearly view of your project according to your needs. Additionally, edit tasks, drag to set due dates, assign users to your tasks, and add custom fields to include any other relevant information. Done! Take a look at the big picture, with no extra effort.
[Update] Company-wide Timeline
Adapting to the needs of our users, we enhanced this new feature by creating a project-level timeline to organize all projects. It gives a complete overview of the work progress and allows you to see how projects are connected.
That’s why the new company-wide timeline is a Project Manager’s best friend!
