Linking timelines to files or web pages

Connect any object or text on your timeline to documents, images or web sites  

Linking images, files and web pages to the milestones or tasks on your timeline may be useful for sharing project details directly from your PowerPoint slide.

Step 1:  Open your timeline in PowerPoint and select the task, milestone or the object that you want link to a file or web page. 

Step 2:  With your task, milestone or object selected, navigate to PowerPoint’s Insert tab and select the Hyperlink in the Links Group. 

Step 3In the Edit Hyperlink click on Existing File or Web Page. Browse to the file you want your timeline to linked to and click OK.  If you would like to link to a website you can paste your web address or browse to it. You can also add a screen tip which will show on your slide in presentation mode when you hover over the object.
