Creating a timeline that accurately reflects the flow of your event is crucial. Timeline Genius offers you the flexibility to reorder sections of your timeline to prioritize information according to your needs. This tutorial will show you how to adjust the order of sections and insert page breaks to present a timeline that's as organized as your event will be.

Steps to Reorder Your Timeline Sections

  1. Access Timeline Actions: Start by going to the 'Timeline Actions' section within your event’s timeline.

  2. Reorder Sections: Select 'Reorder Sections' to view your current timeline layout.

  3. Drag and Drop: Utilize the dotted icons to drag and rearrange sections into the order you prefer. For example, you might want to place 'Meet the Planning Team' at the top.

  4. Adding Page Breaks: Decide where you want new sections to start on a new page by checking the 'Page Break' box next to the section.

Tips for Effective Reordering

  • Never Check the First Box: Avoid starting with a blank page by not checking the page break option for the first section.

  • Group Related Sections: For coherence, keep related sections, like the 'Floor Plan' and 'Venue Guidelines', on the same page.

  • Preview Changes: After saving your changes, always preview the timeline to ensure the new order appears as intended.

The Importance of Section Order

  • Clarity: The order of information can impact how easily your team and vendors understand the event flow.

  • Professionalism: A well-organized timeline demonstrates your attention to detail and professionalism.

  • Customization: Adjusting the order allows you to highlight the most important sections as per the event's priorities.
