[New Feature] Add A Professional Touch To Your Timelines With Tables

 

We just launched a new feature that will let you add an extra professional touch to your timelines…

Timeline Genius now lets you easily add tables to any part of your timelines!

Sure, you could always type out information in paragraph form, but sometimes atable just looks better 🙂

So let’s say you’ve got a food order for the guys or ladies in the wedding party, and you want a clean way to show who’s getting what… well, just add a table.

Or let’s say you wanna add a whole new section to your timeline for transportation. You can create that section and insert a table to show the vehicle types, seating capacities, driver names, and contact numbers.

To see a quick tutorial on the new table feature, just check out the video below.

 

We hope this new feature helps you shine on like the rock star you are! 🙂

We’re 100% devoted to saving you time and helping you deliver a wow experience for your clients and vendors!

Business Tips

Five Tips For Making The Most Of Wedding MBA

It’s the final countdown to Wedding MBA and we are looking forward to connecting with you while sharing all of the great things Timeline Genius has to offer. We’re finalizing task lists and busting out our most comfortable footwear, but before we head out, here are a few tips to make the most of the conference.

Stop By Our Booth!

We love meeting our Timeline Genius community members, so definitely stop by booth #2431C and say hello. Be sure to grab a bunch of special referral cards to hand out during the conference! For every referral of a paid annual subscription, you will receive two free months on your account!

Check out our Floor Talk!

Our CEO Eddie Babbage will be presenting a Floor Talk on 11/6 at 1p.m.  He’ll be sharing some expert tips and tools for saving hours on your timelines!  Be sure to stop by and say hello!

Connect with the speakers as much as possible.

One of the best parts of Wedding MBA is the list of incredible speakers!  After each session, many speakers hang out to answer questions.  Introduce yourself and take some time to get answers to your questions.

Have a plan.

Take a moment to identify the speakers, vendors, venues and peers that you want to make sure to meet. Map out your time so that you can fit it all in!  Bring business cards to pass out, and a business card holder to collect cards from other people.

Network!

Get to know other wedding professionals who can expand your network, share best practices, and help you build your knowledge and skills.

Remember, the key to a strong connection is listening. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and share a genuine interest in the person you are connecting with.

Bonus tip: Check out our Vendor Relationship Guide for more advice on forging new connections.

Feature Update: Use Bulk Actions to Collaborate Seamlessly on Your Timelines

I’m delighted to announce that we have now added a bulk action feature to help you collaborate even more seamlessly on your timelines!

As you know, Timeline Genius lets you invite your clients, vendors, and venues to access timelines online. And you can manage each person’s access rights on anitem-by-item basis (making items ‘viewable’, ‘hidden’, or ‘editable’).

With the new bulk action feature, you can instantly change the access rights for as many timeline items as you want. So you can zip through your timelines and easily configure collaboration settings to your liking.

To see a quick tutorial on collaboration and the new bulk action feature, just check out the video below.

We hope this new feature saves you time and helps you shine on like the rock star you are! 🙂

We’ve got more exciting features coming soon, so stay tuned for updates!
