Preceden is trusted by hundreds of thousands of people around the world for creating timelines

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.

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 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.

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.

Preceden has been invaluable for gaining insight into the development of scripture manuscripts, doctrines, and ecclesiastical relationships through the centuries.

Nick Elliott, Teacher, Woodmont High School
I've been using Preceden since 2014 for creating timelines for my writing and for other media such as movies, TV series, etc. Having both an actual laid out timeline as well as a list of its events makes it easy to see the continuties of all the stories.

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
Preceden is to me an invaluable resource for me to study and keep a record of things that happen in my life. Last year, while studying history, it was extremely practical to use Preceden to organize events and general historical periods, so that I got that visual idea of the order everything happened in. Now, studying architecture, it is very helpful to plan out project timelines and to keep a record of previous projects.
Erlend C. L. Birkeland, Architecture Student
I am also a homeschooling parent and was looking for an app to use for history studies. My main criteria were for the app to be online and simple to use. I evaluated at least five different downloadable apps and several online versions. The downloadable apps were way too complicated to use, and the online apps were mostly meant for social sharing. But Preceden is extremely easy to use and it lets me focus on my studies and not on the mechanics of organizing my notes.
Bryan Herr, Parent
Preceden has been a great tool for my thesis in which I have considerably enjoyed its convenience for encapsulating significant events. Anyone who seeks to create elegant and useful timelines will enjoy Preceden's practical interface.
Özlem Tunçel, Research Assistant, Boğaziçi University
As a freelance musician, Preceden allows me to see all of my long-term commitments at a glance. I keep a timeline posted on my fridge, so I can easily gauge my level of availability for gigs and projects at any time over the year. Not only does using this beautiful tool prevent overcommitment, but having a visual cue in my environment helps me focus and prepare long before my upcoming deadlines.
Karl James Pestka, Composer and Violinist
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, George Mason University
I teach art classes and I used Preceden to create an art history timeline to embed on my business website. I tried making a timeline using a spreadsheet, but it couldn’t do what I needed. Preceden is the right tool for my goals: very easy to use, visually pleasing, and easy to import to my site.
Greg Storer, Artist and Teacher
Working on my novel with such an expansive chronology is no longer difficult to manage now that I have Preceden to help. The many tools it offers my timeline allow me to see the bigger picture of my story, like marking important events for my characters. I no longer have to deal with making eraser marks or fitting all the details onto a single page; Preceden allows for a malleable timeline which I can change as I see fit.
Steve Solano, Author
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 came in to the rescue! I use it now to keep a timeline of important events in my lf so I never forget anymore!
Jean-Philippe Murray, Software Developer
I am using Preceden to make a historical overview of my dissertation process. The layers are very helpful because they let me analyze different aspects of the process that occur simultaneously.

As a Civil War battlefield guide, I needed a way to keep track of when various events during battles and campaigns took place. I tried several other timeline makers, but most had complicated interfaces with a steep learning curve. Preceden lets me display historical events in chronological order and easily integrate maps, photos and text allows me to develop and plan guided tours for my clients. It makes staying organized so much easier!
