Editors' review

Timeline Maker Professional creates clear, impressive scheduling charts in minutes.

The program's interface is professional and welcoming, starting with some helpful tutorials and moving on to an intuitive layout at every turn. The program feels like operating a calendar system, like the one found on Microsoft Outlook, but its results look very different. After entering in event information like start and stop times, you see a clear timeline of your event. Each step is shown in a highly readable text bubble along a timeline. It is easy to see when each step was happening thanks to the color-coded system. This would be useful for outlining time-sensitive projects in an office or for personal organization. In addition, you can look at your event as a text-based schedule, which seems more printer-friendly. The program also has a feature to change the theme of the timelines with a few dozen different skins. Overall, the program is simple to operate and we loved the easily read results.

Timeline maker Professional has a 30-day trial. It installs desktop icons without permission. We recommend it.

    "Not for medium or serious projects / litigators beware."

    August 17, 2009   |   By Slegal

    Version: Timeline Maker Professional 2.1

    Pros

    Barely anything, Progeny attempts to offer this software to the legal profession and it can only handle a few events before it slows down dramatically. The user interface is a rudimentary version of Excel spreadsheet w/o the flexibility.

    Cons

    After about 100 events the software performance slows down dramatically, we've tried every and the fastest PC's in our office including contemporary Quad core CPU's operating on SSD's and the presentation still drags. Powerpoint integration sucks

    Summary

    The inability to just remove certain columns in the schema makes it frustrating, along with poor performance when trying to populate with any serious projects.
    It was advertised to us a litigation solution but after 100 events from a mal practice / negligence case the entire app drags horribly, we tried every one of fast systems in our office from our best notebooks (Duo Core CPU's w 4GB of RAM on OCz SSD's) to considering just remot'ing into our servers and executing there but even a dual Quad core Xeon (8 core's in SMP) and 16GB of RAM running from a RAID5 array of SSD's still didn't improve performance.
    Our debuggers demonstrated it was the application responsible for poor performance and not our hardware or OS.
    The software is too confined regarding settings, proprietary in every way it seems more kludgy than functional.
    Import / Export functions are horrible, it supposedly can export and import TSV and CSV's but the only formats it seems to import are its own exported files. Trying to import excel files is painful and tempting just to reenter via copy and paste than wasting hours since there isn't decent error reporting advising the user which excel Row is killing the import.
    The program has the ability to link files but can't work with relative paths so any aspirations of using it for a self contained demo are wasted aspirations unless you know for sure what the recipients CD drive letter is. You can always link to a website but some clients are insistent their litigation data remains off web servers and we can agree.
    The balloon charts are useless since there isn't a simple way to organize all of the events and your chart becomes 90 pages tall by 2 pages wide.

    THERE ISN'T A BASIC WAY TO JUST DRAW A LINE BETWEEN TWO EVENTS YOU'D LIKE TO DESCRIBE AS RELATED / THIS REQUIRES US TO PRINT IT OUT AND JUST MANUALLY DRAW LINES WITH RULERS OR USE SNAG-IT TO OVERLAY LINES AND MAKE SCREEN PRINTS !!!!
