How to make a timeline in 5 steps

1. Gather your data

The first step to creating a good timeline is to gather all your data. Whether you’re creating a personal timeline, a project timeline, or you want to visualize historical events, gathering all your data up front will save time in later stages.

2. Pick a template

Unless you’re a professional designer, don’t try to create your timeline from scratch. It requires a trained eye to know when something looks good or not. The why we recommend looking through our template library and picking a timeline design that suits you.

3. Add a timeline

Go to our design components and pick a style of timeline that you want. Each timeline can be used in different formats such as infographics, presentations, flyers, reports, and more.

4. Adjust to your liking

Now it’s time to make the timeline yours! Add in your text, adjust colors, change dates, add images, and play around with fonts.

5. Share your timeline

Once you’re done customizing your timeline and adding all your images, you can download your graphic as a jpg, png, pdf file, or share your timeline with team members
