Customize how you schedule events with our new time increment feature.

Updated over a week ago

Great news for all meticulous planners—Timeline Genius's latest feature release is all about giving you more precise control over your event schedules. We understand that timing is everything, and now you have the ability to customize time increments to suit your detailed planning needs.

Understanding Time Increments

Time increments are the blocks of time between activities on your timeline. Previously, these increments were set at 30 minutes by default, providing a broad overview of your event's schedule. But now, you have the flexibility to refine this setting.

Setting Your Preferred Time Increments

Here’s how to adjust the time increment defaults in your preferences:

  1. Access Preferences: Click on your company name in the upper right corner and select 'Preferences'.

  2. Choose Your Increments: In the preferences menu, you'll find a new option to update your time increment defaults. Whether you need 15-minute, 10-minute, or even 5-minute intervals, you can select the one that best fits your event's complexity.

  3. Update to Save: After choosing your desired increment, click 'Update' to save this new default setting for your account.

Seeing the Change in Action

To see your updated increments:

  1. Open an Existing Timeline: Navigate to a timeline you're working on.

  2. Edit an Event Time: Click on the time entry for any event.

  3. Observe the Dropdown: You'll now see options in the dropdown menu reflecting your new time increment setting.

The Benefit of Custom Increments

This new feature is especially beneficial for:

  • Events with tightly packed schedules.

  • Professionals who need to coordinate intricate details that require more frequent time checks.

  • Anyone looking to offer clients a more granular view of their event timeline.


We're excited to roll out this feature and hope it enhances your timeline creation experience. As always, our support team is here to assist you, so if you have any questions about setting time increments or any other Timeline Genius features, please contact us at
