Notion added a Timeline view

timelinewhatsnewv16nodither.gif

This week, Notion launched a new Timeline view that lets you visualize dates from a database or kanban board in a Gantt Chart-style calendar layout. You can show the original table alongside the timeline, or hide it, add views to filter the timeline down, and more. It's similar to what @optemization mentioned on SaaS Radio Hour as the Notion feature he wanted.

Interestingly, it's a feature that's limited per plan. Personal plans get 3 timelines per workspace, Team plans get 5 per workspace, and Enterprise plans get unlimited timelines. Presumably this is a feature Notion is aiming at pushing teams to upgrade their plans.

This was the only thing preventing me to successfully persuade my company to migrate from confluence to notion, so Iā€™m super thankful they finally delivered it!

Oh cool, would love to hear how you find Notion vs. Confluence if you end up switching!

I don't see a way to add dependencies between tasks or groups of tasks. X doesn't start until Y ends. Group A isn't over until everything in its list is done.

You're right, I don't think Notion has dependencies yet, beyond say adding a note of your own about which task to do next. That would be helpful to have!

beyond that they also shipped hideable properties and some refinements to database pages! i broke it down in a super detailed blog post here: optemization.com/timeline-view-notion!

Ohh yes hideable properties will be awesome for cleaning stuff up.

This Tweet is a fascinating look at how much you can do with Notion Timelines:
