Pros
My Gantt charts always impress the audience because of this this addon. Tracking milestones using this tool is great and visualization of the time makes it easy and understandable for anyone.
It is the perfect integration in Power point, and a perfect administrator of time, it helps to plan the development of the projects in terms of the outputs and evolution of the same.
This is a really helpful, easy to use tool and I love it. I highly recommend it for any projects where you have to share project schedule and timeline with others.
Cons
Currently their office hours for support are limited which, in the event you need assistance and working on a project that night or weekend you are forced to wait.
The software does not create a grouped object on your slide, but a huge quantity of loose objects. If you move an object around, it will move, unless you edit your timeline through the UI.
Replaces creating timelines in Viso (painfully time consuming) or snipping MS Project Gantts (painfully ugly and complex).

Making Timelines of Important data has never been this easy! A few clicks, population, done!

Reviewed 6 years ago

The software made it so much easier to present detailed, informative, and engaging Timelines to customers, as well as to other stakeholders in the projects in which I am involved. It allowed me to pull the audience into the detail without risking boredom. The number of themes available for different types of timelines, as well as the small details that can be customised right out of the box are really great.

Pros

The software being integrated directly with Microsoft PowerPoint makes life so much easier as it adds your timeline directly to a slide you're using. The timeline is made up of shapes and objects commonly available in MS PowerPoint, but there is a lot of intelligence built into it. The object created is not static, but can be edited to change details afterwards by using the simple User Interface provided. The Interface follows the design of PowerPoint and almost seems to be a standard part of the package. Really great software for any level of user.

Cons

The software does not create a grouped object on your slide, but a huge quantity of loose objects. If you move an object around, it will move, unless you edit your timeline through the UI. Whilst this is a nice feature to allow for unique customisation, it adds an element of complexity that not all users will appreciate. (The only reason Ease of Use loses a star.)

Vendor response

Hi, Rick! Thank you for reviewing Office Timeline! It¿s great to hear that you are overall pleased with the add-in¿s performance and output. When manually changing the elements of your timeline, please click the Accept button on the Office Timeline ribbon. The add-in can handle a variety of custom changes, but there are some that it doesn't support. When clicking Accept, the manual edits that are...

Perfect for Gantt Charts, Workflows and Roadmaps

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was preparing a research project for a national fellowship and needed a Gantt chart to explain my plan visually. That is how I came across Office Timeline, a PowerPoint add-on that helped me to nail my planning. I could tweak every aspect of the timeline, moving dates from the calendar, adding milestones and swimlanes, connecting parts from the project, and so on. Since that successful time, Office Timeline has become an indispensable tool whenever I have to prepare a research or teaching project.

Pros

What I like most about this software is its easy use for non-design experts like me. When you have to showcase your future work, this tool allows you to offer a comprehensive overview of the "whats" and the "when" of your project. It creates colorful timelines, easy to adjust if changes happen. You can also customize symbols, arrows, lines, and so on. The templates are handy if you are not used to Gantt/Timeline charts because you can get an idea to follow, depending on your needs.

Cons

It is an expensive software (even the Basic option) for those who are only occasionally in the project management/planning business. In any case, there is a generous two-week testing-for-free period.

Vendor response

Thank you for your purchase and review of the Office Timeline add-in, Alberto! I am glad that the tool helps you showcase your project plans through colorful timelines that are easy to update, and that you consider our product to be a quality, simple-to-use Gantt chart and timeline maker. In terms of the add-in's price, we do strive to ensure value for money and provide the best experience possible by constantly improving it. We release new functionalities on a regular basis, and your subscription entitles you to free updates and access to upcoming features, so that you always get the best of Office Timeline. So, once again, thank you for choosing our product and for your great feedback on its productivity! Best wishes, Sebastian Stingu – Head of Marketing

Good plugin within Powerpoint to create stunning timeplans

Reviewed 4 years ago

Easy integration with Powerpoint makes it easy to convert to any format as needed and exported.

Pros

Easy to create time-plans and Gantt charts for project management. Can be edited and customised quickly. Ready made templates are available.

Cons

The product offers fixed time splitting - in case the splits could be more controllable by user, would have added to the feature as sprints can be either a one week or two week deliverable which is based on tasks.

Vendor response

Hi, Simisara! Thank you for using Office Timeline and for taking the time to review it. We're happy to learn that you consider the add-in to be a quality, well-integrated project management tool that allows you to easily create and customize timelines and Gantt charts with which you are pleased. With regards to a more varied timescale segmentation, I'm excited to inform you that our dev team is working on providing users with more control over that aspect. Although I don't have an exact release date for it, any new functionality or enhancement added is announced through notifications. So please make sure you update your app when notified so you can enjoy its latest improvements. Best wishes, Sebastian Stingu - Head of Marketing

Valuable time-saving tool

Reviewed 8 years ago

This is a great piece of software that has saved me a boatload of time. I create project slides frequently and have been doing so for the past several years. They are primarily used for recurring reviews with my managers. In each review I needed to update the original slide as dates and progress on my project inevitably change month over month. This process was brittle, fiddly, time consuming and...

Pros

1. Integrates natively with PowerPoint and makes very nice looking Gantt charts and timelines. 2. I can import existing data from Excel or Microsoft Project and it instantly turns them into nice slides; I can synchronize these slides when my Excel or mpp data changes. 3. The slides it makes are native PowerPoint slides so they are easy to put into presentations, share with clients and managers and easy to edit. They are familiar for everyone else which is good.

Cons

1. Would really like to see more Project Management types of services, like resource tracking and budgeting. 2. Would like to see an adjacent online service for storing and managing my slides and any templates I build.

Value and Versatility

Reviewed 3 years ago

Office Timeline has given us an edge on other similar businesses. Our donors have frequently commended us on the professionalism of our reports and presentations. Being able to reach new supporters and maintain satisfaction with our current supporters through the functions that Timeline provides has allowed us to start new projects and has given us the security of knowing that our current supporters will continue investing in us.

Pros

Office Timeline has given us the ability to provide our donors and stakeholders with a dynamic view of the projects that we are engaged in. It adds a level of professionalism to our PowerPoint presentations that we had previously been unable to achieve. Rather than generic charts and reports, our donors and stakeholders are able to see graphic representations of exactly where their money and resources are going.

Cons

The software requires the operator to have access to significant amounts of information to be able to provide the best outcomes. This has prevented us from being able to roll out its use to our entire staff.

Vendor response

Thank you, Nick, for choosing Office Timeline and for your great feedback on the add-in's functionality and output. We are thrilled to hear that the tool has helped you and your team create professionally-looking and dynamic charts, reports and presentations which gained your stakeholders and donors' appreciation, and that it has brought value to your work. As for enabling the rest of the staff...
