This article explains the capabilities of GroupCalendar's TIMELINE which is available for the versions v.5.52 and higher (click here to download the latest GroupCalendar (GC) version). This feature gives you a quick and easy overview of all scheduled appointments/activities seperatet by selected users.

The difference between the TIMELINE view and the GANNT view is, that in TIMELINE, you have an detailed overview of all your appointments. Say, you can see users appointments listed vertically and chronologically, even when two appointments are scheduled at the same time.

In the GANNT view, you have to click the plus-sign to see all appointments with the same date and time.

In the TIMELINE view, all appointments and activities are displayed with the same width/size, independent from their duration. This is different in the GANTT view. Here, all appointments, activities are displayed independent of their duration, meaning that longer appointments, activities are displayed with a longer bar and shorter with shorter ones.

TIMELINE supports multiple row as well. You can see more information of an appointment, activity etc. at a glance. Additionally, you have the possibility to see all details of appointments, activities, etc. in tooltips when hovering over them.
Furthermore, you can copy appointments by right-clicking on them.

That’s it! We appreciate your feedback! Please share your thoughts by sending an email to support@mscrm-addons.com.
