Timeline is a tactile view of how the team’s work fits together. With the Timeline View, you can easily map out projects and adjust plans to help teams hit their deadlines. You can use this to see how your different tasks and projects work together over time.
What does this article cover?
Accessing the Timeline View
You can access the Timeline View directly from your board. Open the View Switcher, enable the Timeline View, and then select “Timeline” from your board.
Using the Timeline View
Some functions that make the Timeline View easier to use:
Easily navigate through time with our header controls for finding the right day. And you can always click “today” when getting lost. Alternatively, you can also scroll backward and forwards with your mouse scroll.
Click and hold on the edge of a card to stretch it and set up new date ranges.
Click on "Week" to change the granularity of the time that you're using. Choose between day, week, month, quarterly, or yearly.
Add Start/End Dates
In addition to Trello's traditional Due Dates, start and end dates can now be added to cards! These dates will cause your cards to appear on multiple dates within your Timeline View. Add a Start and End date while editing your card's Due Date, or click the edge of a card in your Timeline View and stretch it to cover multiple dates.
Grouping lets you have a different perspective on your workload. You can group by list, member, label, or none.
Add unscheduled cards
Unscheduled cards can be added from the timeline view by selecting the "+" symbol next to "Not scheduled". This opens up an overview of the cards that are unscheduled where you can click on the card and add a due date.
Timeline view on mobile
Sometimes you need your work on the go. We get this, which is why the Timeline View is also available in our mobile apps. Here are the features available:
Choose to view your timeline with different time periods. You can select between day, week, month, or quarterly.
Group your cards by date, member, label or list
Add a card directly from the timeline.
