[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!

[New Feature] Easily Create Your Timelines When Vendors Are TBD

 

Timeline Genius now lets you easily create your timelines even when you don’t have all the vendor information upfront!

It happens, right? Sometimes you need to start a timeline, and some of the vendors are still to be determined. Well, now you have a simple solution for this…

Timeline Genius lets you start your timelines with placeholder vendors and then automatically swaps them out when you find out who the actual vendors are!

How does it work? When swapping out a temporary vendor, Timeline Genius reviews your whole timeline and replaces the temporary vendor’s name with the actual vendor’s name.

And then, to put a ribbon on top, the system automatically updates your vendor assignments. This way, you can instantly create a tailored timeline for the new vendor that shows just the items relevant to them.

To see a quick tutorial on the new vendor replacement 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!

The Most Important Thing To Do With Nontraditional Client Requests

By Tanya Michelle Debose, This Is The Day Event Planning & Design, LLC

 

Years ago, most couples had two major choices when getting married:  hold the ceremony at the local church and then shoot off to the large catering hall with the over-the-top Italianate decor, OR keep everyone situated in one place by hosting the nuptials and reception at a large hotel.

Today, couples have gone beyond simply crafting their own tear-jerking vows to designing wedding experiences that reflect their personal style and the colorful journey of their relationship.

Events professionals are expert forecasters – we check the weather weeks in advance (and then hourly!) in anticipation of our clients’ celebrations. We scan social media and the interior design and fashion industries to keep up with the latest trends. The same should be true for your business.
