Copy and paste from Excel into the add-in



To save time and effort, Office Timeline users can quickly copy & paste their project data from Excel straight into the add-in. The step-by-step guide below explains how it works.


  1. Organize your task and milestone data in an Excel table as shown in the image below. Task rows should include a title (description), start date, and end date arranged next to each other. Milestone rows should have a description and only one milestone date, also arranged next to each other. 

  2. Now select and copy your table (Ctrl + C).

  3. Open Office Timeline’s Data Entry wizard and paste your Milestone and Task data using the Paste button located in the upper-right corner of the window.

  4. Click the green Create (or Save) button to turn your data into a professional-looking timeline slide.
