Visualize Project Deadlines

Add start and end dates to your tasks, and they automatically populate a project timeline. See your entire project on one screen, and never lose track of a deadline again. When changes occur, simply drag-and-drop tasks to the new deadline. Features across the software automatically update to reflect the new dates.

Make a Timeline on ProjectManager

Project timeline software is the best way to view your task and project schedules on a sequential chart. It’s essential for project planning and monitoring progress. To make a project timeline in ProjectManager, just follow along with these steps.

Task list with name, priority and more

1. Name Tasks

Upload your task list, or use one of our industry-specific templates to get started. Give each task a name to differentiate them. Once created, you can add tags to the tasks. Separate them by project, priority and more, so you can easily filter your project to find what you need.

The length of time needed to complete the task is noted on Gantt timeline

2. Add Duration

Add the start and end dates for each task, and they will automatically be charted on the timeline as a bar that connects the two dates to indicate their duration. This will show you the estimated time it will take to complete each task.

3. Set Milestones

Set milestones on your project timeline to indicate the end of one phase and the start of another. Breaking up the larger project makes it easier to manage, and gives teams a sense of accomplishment when they’ve completed a milestone. It’s great for morale!

Tasks that are dependent on one another are linked on the Gantt chart

4. Link Dependent Tasks

Connect all the dependent tasks to avoid bottlenecks later in the project. Click anywhere on the task bar and drag it up or down to the task it’s dependent on. Task dependencies will show up on all project views.

Colors are added to Gantt chart to make it easier to read

5. Customize Colors & Columns

Create your timeline, then customize it with the colors you want and with as many columns as you need. You control the amount of data you want to include in your timeline.
