Tips and Details on Timeline
- You can use the left and right arrows on your keyboard to slide the TimeLine to the left and the right. Depending on the size of your project plan, you may find this more convenient than using the horizontal scroll bar on the bottom of the screen.
- It is important to note that only Tasks and Milestones can be changed in the TimeLine view. Phases and the Project timelines are updated automatically based on the changes being made to Tasks and Milestones.
- The Milestone date is changed by moving the Milestone to the desired date.
