Timeline Charts

Generate a Timeline Chart automatically from your schedule and create a powerful impact for your audience.  These charts go way beyond the basic Excel based Timelines that you can create using XY scatter charts. Customize your charts to show:

  • whether durations are shown and whether progress is displayed
  • the shape and size of the markers used to show the task date above or below the timeline
  • the maximum # of elements shown in the timeline
  • the style of the vertical bars connecting the tasks to the timeline
  • whether dates are shown in the task labels
  • offset of text above or below the task marker
  • the marker colour and the progress bar colour
  • the colour and size of the timeline bar
  • the style and weight of the task bars
  • Whether the chart is displayed in 3D or 2D

Choose one of five different styles as the starting point for your Timeline:

Style 1 – with the dateline in the middle of the chart and tasks distributed above and below the dateline

Style 2 – Dateline is drawn 60% above the bottom of the chart. Milestones appear above the dateline and tasks below

Style 3 – Dateline is drawn at the top of the chart and all tasks and milestones are distributed below

Style 4 – Dateline is drawn at the bottom of the chart and all tasks and milestones are distributed above

Style 5 – Pert Chart style, showing relationships between activities. Dateline is drawn at the bottom of the chart and all tasks and milestones are distributed above.
