We created a few timeline templates because these are simply a great tool for managing projects. However, we've found several people like having these timelines to supplement their presentations - really these are good whenever you want to graphically reflect anything that's time based. Below is a brief description of each timeline along with the download. But first, here are some quick instructions in using these templates.
At the bottom of each timeline is a section that allows you to enter the dates and a description of the date (note, in some cases it's beneficial to put the date in both the date column as well as in the description). Whatever is written in the Task column (i.e., date description) will be reflected on the timeline.
The HT column is for the height of the date on the timeline and determines if the date is reflected on the upper portion or lower portion of the timeline. Enter a positive number if you want it on the upper portion and a negative number for the lower portion.
Our examples are setup in increments of 5, adjust as necessary.
