How to make a timeline

Make your own timeline

Make your own timeline

Connect yesterday, today, and tomorrow

Sequence every event that transpired on a specific period. Arrange them in order, starting from the earliest act down to the latest. Then, figure out the scale of your timeline and set a bar to lay each segment of your story or project.

Create graphic timelines by using Canva’s library of lines and shapes. Place small circles along the bar to plot specific instances and use arrows to point out important details. Make your time travel complete with texts to describe an event. You can add personality to your timeline with striking fonts and stimulating colors from our options.

Seize that moment in time

Put meaningful contexts along with each point in your timeline. Illustrate an event or task further with visual cues that’ll help your students understand a history lesson or highlight a process to your colleagues at work. Bring clarity to your readers and boost the chances of having a visually appealing infographic.

Our extensive stock library lets you create a visual timeline. Add pictures depicting a particular scenario. You can search for relevant stock images to reflect a process or upload your archival photos of an event. Want to talk numbers concisely? Our chart elements let you visualize progress and growth within a specific time frame. There are also icons and illustrations to refer to a stage in your timeline.

Your timeline won’t take time

It’s intuitive and easy to use for beginners and experienced designers. You can brand it to your liking and collaborate with your peers using our drag-and-drop editing tools.
