Timeline Examples - Timeline Templates
First create a timeline template. Instructions to create a Timeline template:

  • Determine the style required i.e. horizontal or vertical timeline
  • Enter significant dates on the timeline
  • Provide facts and information of people or events which occurred on the specified date

  • Text should be clear and concise
  • Facts and information relating to dates should be easily located
  • A Timeline should provide facts and information at a glance.
