Highlight the Time Between Events
For some types of timelines, you may want to highlight how much time is between some of its key events.
For example, imagine a timeline with three events:
- Project Start (September 7, 2018)
- Planning Meeting (September 21, 2018)
- Investor Presentation (October 12, 2018)
With Preceden, there's an easy way to display the length of time between one or more of these events.
As an example, maybe you want to know how long the Planning Meeting is after the Project Start.
To do that, we'll edit the Planning Meeting event by clicking on it. Then click Show Options:
Next check the Include the amount of time between this event and other events option. You will then have the ability to select other events on the timeline:
Now when you hover over that event on the timeline or check out the event list below the timeline, you'll see the time between the Planning Meeting and Project Start event:
You can even select multiple events. For example, maybe you want to see how long after the Project Start your Planning Meeting is, but also how long until the Investor Presentation.
After you update the event to specify that we want to include both...
... then the time between both events will be displayed:
This makes it incredibly easy to tell at a glance, how much time there is between key events on your timelines.
