I settled on Preceden as it is more about compiling information in multiple layers with a lot of capacity for text. I was not interested in a 'more show than go' product that looked like elementary students might use it. I am more interested in Preceden’s organizational features and storing lots and lots of notes. This is not a toy. Preceden is for serious scholarship. Read More

With Preceden, I was able to customize my timeline and create a timeline that I can insert in a presentation or have a beautiful printout to share. Read More

Preparing timelines in other tools just takes too long, and the results are often disappointing and difficult to update. MS Project can create timelines quickly, but it's very difficult and time-consuming to format them in a way you can present. Preceden takes me just a few minutes to create a complicated timeline that I can share with stakeholders. Read More
