Plan activities and manage projects more effectively by structuring tasks in a timeline.

About the Timeline Workflow template

What is a timeline workflow?

A timeline is a visual tool that chronologically plots out projects step by step. It’s an ideal tool for your team to tell stories (such as an overview of events in your organization), and visualize your projects or processes.

When to use the Timeline workflow template 

The Timeline Workflow template is perfect for any project that relies on visual content. You may find it beneficial to use with your team and also to share with other stakeholders or clients to keep them in the loop on your progress.

The benefits of using timelines 

Timelines are extremely effective tools for teams, whether distributed, in the office, remote, or all of the above. Here are four key benefits.

  1. Alignment: Timelines empower teams to stay aligned throughout the lifecycle of a project, so everyone knows their responsibilities and nothing falls through the cracks.

  2. Planning: Teams use timelines to establish the scope and parameters of a given project. Timelines help you articulate the resources you’ll need to finish the project, project stakeholders, and important deadlines.

  3. Visualization: When you’re working on a project with many moving parts, it can be difficult to figure out your responsibilities to the team. Timelines help your team visualize, track, and report on your progress, as well as past and future steps toward finishing your goal.

  4. Ownership: Timelines allow team members to take ownership of their responsibilities. When you’ve mapped all required deadlines and tasks into a timeline, you can then use the timeline to assign roles and responsibilities. Everyone can then refer to the timeline to understand who owns each aspect of the project.

Agile Methodology, Product Management, Mapping

Process mapping allows you to assess, document, and strategize around any plan or approach your team has put in place. It’s a useful tool for eliminating or preventing blockers. Organized by stages, a process map enables your team to divide up a process or system and record deliverables and action items at each stage of the process. By breaking down the objectives, activities and deliverables at any stage of a project, you can gain insight into whether you are on track or effectively working through a problem.

Status Report Template

Works best for:

Project Management, Documentation, Strategic Planning

A status report provides a snapshot of how something is going at a given time. You can provide a status report for a project, a team, or a situation, as long as it emphasizes and maps out a project’s chain of events. If you’re a project manager, you can use this report to keep historical records of project timelines. Ideally, any project stakeholder should be able to look at a status report and answer the question, “Where are we, and how did we get here?” Use this template as a starting point to summarize how something is progressing against a projected plan or outcome.
