Does anyone know how to scale the timeline to show a specific date range? I located a post (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2013_release-project/timeline-timescale-setting-in-project-2013/06e104c1-5de8-4b8a-bbdf-fa4613f0fd88?auth=1) that says:
The Timeline shows the entire project from start to finish date – even if you don’t have tasks added to the timeline.
I can reproduce what you report and cannot seem to find an elegant way of changing the formatting short of changing task durations and forcing a re-paint of the timeline scale.
Am I missing something?11/28/2013 at 4:51 pm #71057Ismet KocamanGuest
Sheryl, No. It is not possible to change the range preset. Regards, –Ismet06/28/2019 at 9:49 am #415873Ian HGuest
I realise this is an old post but in case anyone else reads it and wonders:-)
You can change the date range by clicking on the timeline date line, then going to Format > Date Range and input the range you want to show.01/27/2020 at 3:48 pm #417182Amanda KGuest
In response to Ian’s post, the option to adjust the timescale of your timeline is only available in the Project PROFESSIONAL version, and not in Standard. I have been doing extensive research trying to make it work and have decided to just create a custom timeline in MS Excel to suit this particular need.05/10/2020 at 12:15 pm #418002Walid AGuest
I have Project professional, and I am able to set the date range for a specific timeline. The problem is that I can only do that for the first time. It doesn’t allow me to change the date range a second time for the same timeline (the button is grayed).it seems it’s one-time change that cannot be edited again. Anyone know the solution?
