4.3. How can the Timeline View benefit your projects?

How to make the most of the Timeline View

A timeline is a necessary tool for working on workspaces. But you probably already know that. Therefore, we have prepared more time zoom options to help you get the most out of the Timeline View. One of these options is to display workspaces for one month.

Tip:
You can move sideways along the timeline by simply dragging the mouse.

However, if you have a long-term project, we recommend you use our second view. This is a simple view where one column represents one week.

Tip:
If you need to show the project progress to the client or your supervisor and do not want to go into detail, then this view is the perfect basis for the meeting.

BACKLOG
An integral part of the timeline is the BACKLOG column on the right-hand side. It is filled with all the tasks without a specific date yet. These are automatically transferred to the BACKLOG section. From there, simply drag and drop each task to the workspace timeline. It is so easy!

Task dependencies
You can create links between tasks that are dependent on each other. This is a function that guarantees you a smooth project run. Thanks to continuity, you eliminate the risk of completing the project after the deadline. Task dependencies ensure that members work smoothly on tasks in the right order.

You can create task dependencies from one task to multiple tasks, or you can create task dependencies from multiple tasks to one. Links can be created from the beginning or end of the task. Watch a short video that shows you all the options for setting task dependencies.

Tip:
If you have multiple tasks linked to each other and the project schedule changes, you don’t have to move each task separately. You grab the linked tasks as a set and move them anywhere in time. It’s really easy!
