Attention!... make elegant timelines in Excel within minutes

Why You Need Excel Timeline Maker

If you're a project manager, consultant or event planner you'll likely be using Excel to track tasks and deadlines. And you'll probably want to present your plan to key stakeholders.

You don’t have the budget for fancy software, so you get straight to work in Excel.

Maybe you need to update your boss in a project review meeting, or engage a key client on a new project, or even pitch to a potential investor looking to fund your startup.

Your problem is that Excel isn’t built to make good looking plans…

… and you spend hours setting up and updating bar charts to show off your plan on a single PowerPoint slide.
Eventually you cobble something together just in time for your meeting and wipe the sweat from your forehead.


But... that's not the end of your problems... it's actually much worse!

When you get to your meeting and bring up the slide, it has 57 task lines squeezed to fit on one slide and is presented in font size 14. This stuff can bore your audience to sleep!

There’s too much detail and nothing grabs their attention.

They care more about their hungry tummy (or whatever else is in the room) than your meticulously detailed plan…

And worst of all, despite all the effort you put into making the plan and finessing the layout in Excel…

The only thing you’ll have achieved is another wasted meeting.

That sucks… because you won’t have the impact you want, you can’t get buy-in from the right people, and you end your day in a serious huff.



Introducing Excel Timeline Maker

Create your next Timeline in minutes

When you get the Excel Timeline Maker, you have super easy features that work straight away. And you’ll have an elegant timeline within minutes. 

But... I'm getting ahead of myself. My name is Victor Chan and I've actually been teaching Excel online for over 6 years.

My most popular YouTube video actually shows how to create timelines in Excel using Scatter Charts.

That one 24-min video has over 550,000 views and 1.4k likes from project managers, schedulers, planners…

… people just like you who want to create timelines inside Excel where their data lives.

But I know that it takes a lot more than a 24-min video to get this implemented in Excel... especially if you are not an expert in creating and editing Scatter Charts with Error Bars.

In fact it took me a couple of hours experimenting in Excel before I created my first timeline. Not to mention A LOT of frustration during that steep learning curve.

I recently decided to take what I’d been teaching on YouTube and enhance it to make it super quick to get great results.

So… no more endless clicking and adjusting chart elements to get things looking just right.

The Excel Timeline Maker just works straight out of the box.

Works right inside Excel. Why fiddle around with another program if your data already lives in Excel? The Excel Timeline Maker is ready-to-go right in Excel, and because it's a spreadsheet there is nothing to install or uninstall. Plus it's fast and responsive when you edit data. All you need to do is Enable Macros when you open the spreadsheet.


Color-coded task duration and completion %. Easily see the difference between planned task duration and estimated completion %. The default colors are grey for duration and green for completion.


Add "At Risk" bars. No matter how well your project runs, life will get in the way and create delays... and when that happens you can extend each individual task bar to show "At Risk" status. The default color for "At Risk" is orange. Helpful for project progress reviews and rescheduling tasks.


Marker lines for Today and Deadline. Enter today's date and the project deadline - and you get special marker lines to show these. Combine with "Completion %" and "At Risk" bars, and the marker lines help people to visualize project progress towards a deadline.


Customize appearance. Use Excel's built-in formatting options to adjust color, size and positioning of task bars. You can create the look you need that matches your brand.
