Simple, clear timelines

Here are two examples. Try dragging them around:

Preceden helps me organize all of the work being done across the company to bring a product to market. No other timeline maker out there has been as easy to use to structure the schedules for our teams and paint a clear picture for executives. Preceden saves me time and helps improve communication across the board... I've been waiting for a tool like this for years!

I use Preceden extensively for my AP World History class. The course is broken into six time periods and I have the students create a timeline for each period where they include the major events, the cause and the effect of the event, and why they chose that event. My students love Preceden because it is so easy to use and helps to visually see what we talk about in class. I love it because I can grade their timelines easily and tell who is understanding the material and who may need more help.

Everything you need to create the perfect timeline

Preceden has proven an extremely useful tool for both organizing and displaying data for my dissertation research. The simple-to-use interface offers the exact functionality that I need without distractions.
-Melissa Sinclair, PhD Candidate, George Mason University
Preceden is perfect for my studies in college. The layers and color options allow me to see the historical context of an event at a glance. The collaboration feature makes it even more powerful because I can build complex timelines with my fellow students. Preceden is a fast, easy to use, and well-designed timeline maker. Highly recommended.

“My favorite thing about Preceden is that it helps me get a really good overview of a historical period because it lets me make such flexible timelines. I've discovered links between events I had never even thought about.”
- John Maar
“I love the simplicity of making and embedding timelines! Also, the layers are perfect for our organization. The timelines are easy to understand and make, the interface is very solid.”
- Tom Brett
“I love the ability to insert events as a collaborative process--class assignment or group assignment. Very cool.”
- Don Ragan, history teacher
“I was thrilled to stumble across Preceden, a web-based timeline creator. With a few clicks you can make an interesting timeline that includes links and privacy controls. The timelines are interactive — just click and drag to advance or recede — and can even be printed.”
- Creative Pro, Graphic Designer
“Creating a timeline is an important part of writing and is made much easier and simpler with Preceden. Thank you very much!”
- Mougly Singer, author
“The fact that Preceden offers layers puts it miles ahead of other timeline apps that I’ve seen.”
- Chris M, project manager
“I wish my students’ supply lists included an account on Preceden instead of "paper, pens, etc."”
- Ryan Malany, Principal
“I love the service! Shocking that the desktop timeline apps I’ve used just aren’t as flexible or readable as this.”
- Vlad, Technical Coordinator
I am very impressed with Preceden and am shocked there are no real competing solutions out there that provide this functionality. In my organization we often preach the benefits of systems thinking but seldom provide any means for stakeholders to see themselves in the larger system at play. Preceden provides that capability, making it incredibly easy for a lead to post an integrated timeline to the team. Make no mistake, this is not an online Gantt chart, but a top-down view of phased activities and critical milestones that ensure everyone is aware of other program stream activities. I highly recommend Preceden to any program or project manager who values clear communications as a key ingredient to success.
