Managing tasks and events with Timeline

On the Line

Article from Issue 140/2012

Is the conference before or after your publication date? What tasks do you need to complete in what order? Was Jean born before Derek? Was the Atari ST released after the Amiga? Timeline is a program that can give you fast answers to these kinds of question, typically at a glance.

Timelines have always been popular in books and magazines, and they are no less popular on the Internet. In history lessons, they show you at a glance when events took place; Linux enthusiasts track the release dates of their favorite distributions; project planners use Timeline is to define their milestones; and now Facebook even uses them to plot out your life. A small program named Timeline lets you create your own timelines quickly.
