Timeline Genius now lets you effortlessly start your timelines by sending an upfront questionnaire to your clients!
Your clients then complete this questionnaire online, and their answers serve as your basic input for starting the timeline.
Why is this such a time saver? Because you don’t have to enter the vendors, venues, or other input to start your timelines. You simply review the answers from your client and approve or reject their input with the click of a button.
