Layers allow you to keep your timeline organized by helping you group related events together. For example, in a project plan you might have one layer containing all events related to investor activity and another layer containing all events related to marketing and advertising. By grouping related events together in layers, your timeline will always remain clean and organized.
When you're ready to share your timeline, Preceden gives you a lot of options. You can...
Whether you want to display event dates directly on the timeline, change the font size, or show a vertical line representing today's date, Preceden provides many different ways to customize the appearance of your timeline to meet your needs.

Our agency was in need of a simple way to create and show clients a marketing timeline for our proposed services. Our intern came across Preceden and we haven't looked back. We use the timeline to give clients a high level overview of our marketing plan for their business. They love being able to easily visualize what otherwise would look like a very complex plan in a written proposal.Jason Eagleson, Founder at Eighty6

Hey, I'm Matt Mazur, the creator of Preceden. As a former project manager in the US Air Force, I spent countless hours creating timelines in Excel and PowerPoint to manage my projects and to keep my leadership informed about our progress. After seeing many of my peers struggle to create professional timelines as well, I decided to create Preceden to make creating timelines a breeze.
If you have any questions or I can help in any way, don't hesitate to drop me an email. Thanks for checking Preceden out!
