One of the greatest benefits of Preceden is when I use a timeline in a contract for a new client. By including a timeline that shows a detailed scope of work in the contract, I set the exact expectations that I’m going to fulfill, increasing client satisfaction with my consulting services. The tool is very intuitive and quick, so it contributes to a more efficient use of my time. Read More

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

I tested several timeline tools and chose Preceden because of its aesthetic and ease of use. Other tools were clunky and didn't really have the features that I needed such as layers. 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.

I need to prepare timelines for programs and projects to communicate plans and pro-gress to clinicians, administrators, and managers. 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
