    @Cathy Fanning I was wondering whether you've got any tips on how to get the most out of Timeline? Since you've got a strong project management background I'm super interested in what you think of it!

    Hi @Miša @Andrew Lapidus comments and tips for using the Timeline views are excellent! Probably one of MeisterTasks more "pure" project management features, unfortunately overlooked by some users until it's shown to them.

    I haven't really got any outstanding tips that come to mind but some clients who are using Microsoft Project for really large scale complicated projects are also using or trailing MeisterTask. They are really impressed with the Timeline view. It creates a familiarity with Microsoft Project which allows them to learn MeisterTask even quicker.

    In training or consulting sessions if I know the client is already using Microsoft Project extensively I will focus on MeisterTask's Timeline view. It always works and then you simple wait for the light bulb moment.
