Go to date function and dates in Timeline–Project for the Web!


today I will show you the Go to date function and dates in Timeline using Project for the Web.

First, I will create a simple project:


I will switch to Timeline view:


Now, let’s say that I want to see what will happen on Jan 4th, 2021. I can scroll, or I can use Go to date function like:


and here it is:


As you can see, Tasks are not highlighted, but the whole Project is scrolled to the. specific date.

One more interesting thing. In Timeline View, there are only two fields on the right side of the Screen: Task Name and Resources. To see additional information about specific Task I should use Task Details:


and I will get:


or I can just highlight the Task on the Gantt Chart:


So, when I hoover the mouse over the Task, time period is shown whit Task Start and End date highlighted, and the Duration is shown as well.
