Standard and Free Form Timelines

 Posted on 6/3/2017 by DougO in News

Panda Timelines now supports both "Standard Timelines" and "Free Form Timelines". The latter is a new type of timeline that gives you the flexibility to order the timeline events manually. This is different from the "Standard Timeline" which automatically orders the events in chronological order. 

Below is a brief description of each type of timeline and suggest usage.

Standard Timeline

This type of timeline is perfect for personal histories, special events, modern history, or anything that has happened in the past 2000 years. This timeline automatically displays the events in sorted date order. Dates between January 1, 0001 and December 31, 9999 on the Western calendar are supported.

Free Form Timeline

This type of timeline allows you to manually set the order of events. You may include dates (in any format you wish) in the event titles. Because Free Form Timelines allow you to manually set the order of events you can create timelines that are based on calendars not supported by the Standard TImeline. 

Free Form Timelines are a great choice when your timeline needs to use prehistoric, geological, cosmic, or religious dates. This choice is also great for fictional dates (e.g., Middle-Earth, Star Wars, etc.).

Please visit the Panda Timelines Community Forum for help or any questions.

Sincerely,

The Panda Timelines Team

Share Timelines with your Friends and Family

 Posted on 2/25/2017 by DougO in News

One of the great things about the web and social media is the ability to share your thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world. Sharing a timeline that you created with your friends, family, or online community is a great way to let everyone see and enjoy your work. 

Panda Timelines makes it easy to share your timeline to Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, and other sites. At the top of your timeline you will find buttons for sharing your timeline directly to Facebook and Twitter.

To share a timeline to your Facebook page, simply click the “Share” button and a “Post to Facebook” window will pop up where you can add text to your post and then submit to Facebook. 

To share to Twitter, press the “Tweet” button and a “Share a link on Twitter” window will appear that contains information about your timeline. Update the message, if you like, and press the "Tweet" button to share your timeline. 

Enjoy!
