Introduction to timeline

The timeline is a visual event structure that makes it easy for you to build your event and have an overview of the event. The timeline is dynamic and can be extended when it comes to screens, tracks and columns. Read more about this in 'how to' below.

1. Why timeline

  • You want to see and work on your event from a holistic perspective when you build it.

2. How to

When you run an event you run it in the same way as the timeline is built, so think of the columns as steps the participants will go through.

Columns

The columns starts from 'Intro' (your event's introduction page) and then counts in number depending on how many steps you have in your event.

Add a module to a slot in the last column to extend your event.

Slots

Slots are boxes to put modules in. You can combine and add multiple modules in one slot.

Screens

Screens are typically a presentation screen on a stage. You can add multiple screens, each with different rows where you can add modules. This makes it possible to display different things on different screens at the same time. Read more about Screens.

Tracks

You can add tracks to make it possible for your event to let participants get different content based on their participant data/answers etc, or if you want to create breakout groups. Read more about Tracks.

Modules

Modules are the content containers for your event. In modules you add information, interactions, results etc that will be presented for participants or on screens. There are also a number of more advanced modules to be used for e.g. competitions, sub projects etc.

Click on 'Add Module'

Choose what type of module you want to create and name it.

Click 'Select' to create it. The new module will appear in the module library. To edit the new module, click on the module block's name.

From the module library you can edit your module and drag and drop it to the slots in the timeline.

You can reuse a module from the library as many times as you want.
