Timeline view of the calendar

If you choose a timeline view, you can choose from several date ranges. The screen can display data for a single week, up to data for an entire year.

The timeline view displays a grid-like view of the objects, such as projects, programs, or plans that you selected and filtered (for example, Active Projects). The objects are organized by a unit of time, depending on which timeline view you selected.

Each object is displayed in a horizontal bar across its date range. The name of the object displays on the bar.

Note: If you select Enable Color Coding from the calendar view options screen, the bar for each object is displayed in a color that is based on an attribute you chose.

Choose a date-range for the timeline.

  • Week: displays one week, with each day listed as a column. The starting day is either Sunday or Monday depending on the option that is selected in the Calendar/Timeline Settings page.
  • Month: displays a single calendar month. Each day is listed as a column, and days are grouped into weeks.
  • Quarter: displays three calendar months. Each week is listed as a column, and those weeks are grouped into months.
  • Fiscal Year: displays a fiscal year. The starting month depends on a configuration setting, firstMonthInFiscalYear. Each month is listed as a column, and the months are grouped into quarters.
  • Calendar Year: displays a calendar year, which starts in January and ends in December. Each month is listed as a column, and the months are grouped into quarters.
Note: Any day that is specified as non-work time has its column that is disabled. Additionally, the name of the non-work time (for example, "Labor Day") displays when you point to the date. This feature is not available when the time scale is Quarter, Fiscal Year, or Calendar Year.
