The timeline view is a staple that could be used in any use-case. It is a great way of producing a Gannt chart with clear dependencies and milestones to communicate the strategy, plan in place or just the road ahead.

 

 

The timeline in SharpCloud can become scrollable, allowing more complex timelines to be visualised whilst keeping the readability.
