    Re: Print a timeline (2000)

    Andrew,

    Can you attach a picture of what you are trying to accomplish. MS Project has a calendar view that may or may not help as well as can group tasks but you will still be using a Gantt. Primavera (another scheduling tool) can group data in various ways but you still would be using a gantt (check their website as I am sure they have added new features).

    Posting a review of the data as well as a picture of what you want will help us to understand your requirements.
    Regards,

    Gary

    If the Calendar is in Outlook, see if any of the tools in Slipstick Calendar Print Utilities do what you need.

    John - thanks for the tip. There's some great software at this site.
    The "Outlook year view control" from PlanetSoftware.com.au did the trick !.
    Best thing is -- its a well engineered piece of Aussie software, and I can pay in Aussie dollars! :-)

    cheers, Andrew

    I don't really know what you mean by "bunched together like a history chart" ... but would recommend that you probably should not be using Project. Use Visio, Word, Excel, or even paper/pen on paper to make the chart you want.

    Why do I get the sense you are simply advertising here?

    Print a timeline (2000)

    Edited by WyllyWylly to add URL code. See the Quick Guide.[/i] <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi there! I am really frustrated at the moment.

    I am trying to find a way to print a bunch of activities in a timeline - not the way a gantt charts shows it all branched out sequentially, but bunched together like a history chart. Outlook 2000 Journal view does a good job but I cannot print this view? I have trawled the web looking for some software that will do the trick, and there is some good timeline software out there (http://www.timecalendar.com & Timeline Maker from http://www.progenysoftware.com). TimeLine Maker comes the closest, but I cannot categorise the activities, use different bar colours, or show weeks etc.

    I'm just after something that can print a timeline of business activities, relevent public events, corporate milestones, advertising, PR activity, trade shows etc. You know what I mean? Something that prints a correlated set of "What's going on" that everybody can refer to - all packed neatly together in categories with a flexible timeline view.

    Does anybody have any ideas/solutions for this??

    thanks in advance, Andrew.

    Rob,

    Welcome to the lounge, I hope you find it as friendly and helpful as the rest of us.

    You will note that this is a much more friendly place than the world of newsgroups and other forums where people are often quite asservive. Please try to tone down your responses a little and give people a bit more space.

    Thanks.

    StuartR

    > Why do I get the sense you are simply advertising here?

    We do have a rule (<!rule=12>Rule 12<!/rule>) against advertising, but I think you have misread the thread. The poster was praising the Slipstick site, run by Sue Mosher, which is an informational site with a tremendous amount of help on all Outlook-related issues. I've praised that site myself. As far as I can tell, there is no commercial interest of the poster being promoted here.

    For future reference, you could try addressing this sort of concern using our Private Message system. (Click the username to open the profile, it's usually easy to send a message from there.)

    Re: Print a timeline (2000)

    A gantt chart shows one activity per line, grouped into sub-tasks.
    I'm after something that can print a timeline with multiple activities arranged efficiently into a few rows, grouped in categories preferably.
    The attached graphic is not great (no colour coded categories and only 1 year timescale) but should give you the general idea.

    Andrew.

    I would guess that Rob meant the compliments Andrew paid to Planetsoft in <img src=/S/aussie.gif border=0 alt=aussie width=21 height=22> seemed like advertising. Seeing that Andrew is in QLD and Planetsoft is in SA, I don't expect there's any connection, just a bit of happiness on Andrew's part that he found a good <img src=/S/aussie.gif border=0 alt=aussie width=21 height=22> software company between the mines, the spinifex, and the roos. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> (And then there's also the SA vinyards.)
