Excel Project Timeline - Step by step instructions to make your own Project Timeline


Create Your Timeline 
This article will show you how to create a timeline in Excel, using a template in the context of planning a business conference. Hosting a successful business conference can take months of planning and it’s the type of project where a timeline is essential. It involves plenty of moving parts and usually has quite a few stakeholders. 

In this scenario, an event planner would start by making a list of tasks. These tasks may include managing a budget, scouting and securing a conference site, hosting speakers, hotel arrangements, conference schedule, and more. With all this information, you can either look at a timeline template in Excel or find a more robust solution to first make a Gantt chart and use that to create a timeline. This tutorial will show you how to do both.
This video is a 24-minute in-depth explanation showing how I created a project timeline in Excel 2010. I take you step-by-step through most of the detail and give helpful tips along the way.
