If you have tried to create a timeline in PowerPoint, you probably spent ages, drawing text boxes, and shapes and then formatting it all to look great.
In one of the Office updates, PowerPoint Designer was given the ability to turn a list of dates into a visual timeline. It is fab!
This feature works when:
Select the bulleted list (1) and then click Design Ideas (2) on the right, PowerPoint will offer a selection of designs. Some of the designs will be laid out as a timeline and others a different kind of representation (3)
Select the design that you like, and it will change.
If you change the theme the design will change to match and you will be offered other designs to choose from. In fact, if you don’t like the first design you have been offered click the Design Ideas button again and some fresh designs will be shown.
