Change the timescale of your project’s timeband.

If the duration of your project spans multiple years or just a few days you can change the date intervals on your timeband to match by setting it to Days, Weeks, Months, Quarters or Years.  (To make dateless timeline that presents a project without defining a specific start or finish date please see this blog on dateless timelines.)

  1. Set up your timeline in Office Timeline which sets the time band’s interval to months by default.
  2. From the Office Timeline ribbon in PowerPoint click on the Style Button and go to theScale Tab.  Pick a new timescale of Days, Weeks, Weeks (ISO), Quarters or Years, and then click the Green Accept button to update your timeline.  You will also find the language control for the timeband here (although not show in image). Use the language control to change the language of your time band’s scale if you have an international audience.








In the example below we have switched the time scale from months to weeks.
