You have a lot to say when presenting your project timeline. The adage of too much information rings true as your slide is populated with titles and dates. (To change the timescale of your project’s timeband, see this blog on timeband scales.)

Follow these few steps to improve the clarity of the information on the slide.

1.Prepare your milestone and task data to create a project timeline that looks something like this for example.

2.Next, select Date Format on the Office Timeline ribbon to choose a more compact date style for your tasks (and milestones).

3.Finish adding clarity to the presentation slide by using the Task tools to split the dates and position the text above or below the task arrows.
