Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Collaborate with Confidence Using “View As”

 

We just rolled out another new feature for you!

You can now preview your timeline as any of your collaborators before you invite them!

As you know, Timeline Genius makes collaborating with your clients, venues, and vendors a piece of (wedding) cake. You can invite them to view and edit a timeline, and even hide any items you don’t want them to see.

So let’s say you want to invite your bride to view the timeline, but you need to make sure she can’t see the surprise her groom has planned… No sweat! In the Collaborate Tab you can select View As to view the timeline as if you’re the bride. Then you confirm that the surprise item is hidden, invite her to the timeline, and you’re all set!

With this handy new feature, you can know exactly what your collaborators will see before you give them access to the timeline.

Check out the tutorial video below to see the new feature in action.

 

We hope this new feature helps you collaborate with more confidence than ever.

Keep shining out there and doing your thing! And we’ll keep rolling out the exciting new features for you!

Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Manage Collaboration with Max Efficiency

 

Are you ready for the first new feature announcement of 2020?

Timeline Genius now lets you collaborate with max efficiency by setting access rights for multiple timeline items AND multiple collaborators at once!

As you know, our goal is to help you shine like a rock star. So Timeline Genius lets you invite your clients, vendors, and venues to access your timelines online. And you can manage each person’s access rights on an item-by-item basis (making items ‘viewable’, ‘hidden’, or ‘editable’).

Now, with the new feature, you can breeze through the process of setting access rights for all of your collaborators. So let’s say you have a group of timelines items that you want to hide from all of your vendors. No sweat! Just select all your vendors, select those items, and set the access rights to ‘hidden’. Done 🙂

To see a quick tutorial on this new time-saving feature, just check out the video below.

 

We hope this new feature helps you sail into 2020 with greater ease and efficiency!

We’re SO EXCITED about the promise this new year holds. And we’re deeply honored and grateful for the privilege of helping you work toward your dreams!

[New Feature] Improved Collaboration — Time Editing Rights

By popular demand, we just improved our collaboration features so that you have the option of letting your clients, vendors, and venues edit the times in your timelines!

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

With the new collaboration features, you can grant full edit rights. So let’s say you’re doing a partial planning package, and you want your couple to be able edit times… Or let’s say you have a super-Type-A bride, or a trusted vendor, who wants to edit times directly… Now you can make everybody happy and save time by doing less editing yourself 🙂

To see a quick tutorial on the new and improved collaboration features, just check out the video below.

We hope these new features save you time and help you fly with an even higher level of professionalism for your clients and vendors.

Keep shinin’ out there Timeline Geniuses! And we’ll keep making our software even more Amazeballs for ya 🙂

Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Introducing Vendor & Venue Labels

 

We just added a new preference that lets you show (or hide) vendor and venue labels for timeline items!

As you know, Timeline Genius ‘knows’ which vendors and venues are involved in each timeline item. And now, with the click of a button, you can turn on labels and have your timelines visually show who’s involved in what. Clean. Simple. Efficient.

Of course, this new feature is just a preference setting, so you can leave your labels turned off if that’s your cup of tea. The idea here is, you get to customize your timelines to your liking.

To see a quick tutorial on the new vendor and venue label feature, just check out the video below.

 

We’ve been on a roll with the new features over the past few weeks, and you can expect the improvements to keep coming!

Keep shining out there Timeline Geniuses, and we’ll be right here working like crazy to help you do your thing! 🙂

Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Customize Your Page Margins

 

We’re on a roll, and I’m excited to share another new feature with you… 🙂

As of now, you can customize the page margins for your timelines!

Over the years, one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that each of you has your own special way of doing timelines… And that means you may want to show more or less content on each page.

Maybe you like to show more content per page, so your timelines will have fewer pages overall. Or maybe you just want to maximize horizontal space to be able to show a larger floor plan image.

Whatever the case, now you can set your topbottomleft, and right margins just the way you want them.

To see a quick tutorial on customizing your margins, just check out the video below.

 

Enjoy your new customizable page margins, and be on the lookout for more awesome improvements over the next few days!

Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Introducing Hyperlinks

 

As of now, you can easily insert hyperlinks in your timelines!

So let’s say you need to reference a specific list of songs in a timeline item… Now you can link directly to a playlist on Spotify or YouTube.

Or maybe you wanna make it easy for people to get directions to one of the venues in your timeline… No sweat, just insert a link for the venue address on Google Maps.

And the cool thing is, not only will your hyperlinks work online, they’ll also be embedded in your timeline PDFs. So you can click or tap on hyperlinked PDF text and go straight to the desired web destination.

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

 

We hope this new hyperlink feature lets you add even more flair and professionalism to your timelines.

Be on the lookout for more awesome improvements over the next few days!

Timeline Genius

[New Feature] Make Grid Lines on Your Timeline

 

Get ready for a series of new feature updates over the next couple weeks because we’ve been busy improving the site for you!

Today, I want to announce a new feature that lets you show (or hide) grid lines on your timelines! (We added the new grid line option as a setting in your Preferences section.)

Over the years, we’ve gotten a number of requests for this feature… Some of you used to create your timelines in Excel or Google Sheets (before you discovered the magic of Timeline Genius :D). So if you find yourself missing grid lines on your timelines, you can add them back now.

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

This new feature is just another way that Timeline Genius lets you express your own unique style, creativity, and professionalism.

So if grid lines are your thang, enjoy! And keep on shinin’ like the rock star you are 🙂
