When syncing with MS Project, you might want to keep the current task and milestone titles you have on your timeline for presentation purposes, but still update dates or any other values that might have changed in your .mpp file. In such cases, you can instruct Office Timeline to ignore all Title changes when syncing. Here’s how it works:

From the Sync settings menu, check the box labeled "Ignore Title column changes".
If any of your items’ titles are different in Project compared to your current timeline, our tool will ignore any such differences and keep the timeline version of said titles when syncing.
If an item has only the title that’s different in Project compared to your timeline (all its other values are the same), its status will switch from Changed to Imported when choosing to ignore Title changes. Depending on what filters you have applied, that item might get hidden from view, but you can quickly make it visible again from the Filter dropdown:
