Bee Docs' Timeline 2.0 RELEASED!

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Bee Docs Timeline 2.0 Website

It's about time!

I just turned on the new website for Bee Docs' Timeline 2.0. Press releases are going out tonight... Get it while it's hot!

Bee Docs' Timeline 2.0 has under development for 18 months and I've been working pretty much full time on it for the last 13 months.

Special thanks to the T2 User Design Panel and to the hundreds of folks who has given me feedback over the past 3 years. Thanks also to Kenichi for the wonderful icon artwork, Bill for help with the website, Tony for help with the filming, Michael for the website concept, the folks at Apple who have provided lots of valuable advice and encouragement, and Exbiblio for letting me use their very cool office space. Most of all, thanks to the folks who have bought a license and made it possible for me to do this.

Give me about two days to relax (just kidding) and then start sending your suggestions, feedback, and ideas. Most of all, I'd love to hear how you are using Bee Docs' Timeline 2.0. It would be fun to post some real-world examples of your work on the blog.

Congratulations! The new site looks great and the software works better than I imagined from your posts. Enjoy your time off. You deserve it.

Congratulations! I enjoyed working with you for T2 project. Also, T2 is the most beautiful timeline software I think.

Thanks again.

Very nice program. One thing I'd like to see (or simply have explained if it's already possible) is how to make a "relative timeline".

For example, I want to show a series of events that are labeled relative to the starting event at t=0.

Maybe a process has events like:
t=0 - Project kickoff meeting
t=+1 wk - Contract signed
t=+3 wks - Responsibilities assigned
t=+5 wks - First deliverable
etc.

This would be the sort of tentative schedule one might give a customer who is considering a deal and wants to know "How long will it take?"

So, I need events that have no actual dates showing, but just lags and durations. Maybe this is as simple as having the ability to:
o define a timeline as either relative or absolute
o define a base event
o for each event, show duration from either the base event, the previous event, or any arbitrarily selectable event
o some additional label formats for relative labeling

Thanks.

Wow Adam, the difference between version 1 and version 2 is amazing!

I've had a timeline license since Apr 2006, and didn't use it much because it was fairly limited.

With this new version, I'll be using it a lot more. Great job!
