What is a timeline? And when should you use one?

Timelines show the steps or events of a process or project over a certain period of time. They show minimal detail, but they do make it easy to see when each step of the process must be completed. A timeline consists of a horizontal bar or line representing time progressing from left to right. This bar is marked with events or steps to indicate when they should or did happen.
