Office Timeline was a critical tool in writing my doctoral dissertation. I was quickly able to create detailed timelines and present them in a simple, uncomplicated way with a tool set that was already familiar. To create equivalent PowerPoint timelines from scratch would have cost me many hours and updating them would have been painful.

I absolutely love the Office Timeline PowerPoint add-in! It is so very easy to use, very flexible and creates beautiful timelines quickly! It has been a valuable productivity tool for me and I highly recommend it.
