Multiple Project Timeline PowerPoint Template Download

What is a multiple project timeline?

Multiple project timeline is a visual representation of schedules of various projects which are part of the portfolio. Showing multiple project timelines is a routine task for anyone managing multiple projects. The multiple project timeline not only allows displaying multiple projects it also allows to provide a quick status about the project  parameters.

  • The title and the timeline - you can give a title that suits you and change the timeline as per you needs. By default the timeline is monthly but you can change it to weekly and quarterly.
  • The projects and phases - each project is separated by a line and can have multiple tasks. As this is a high level timeline I suggest you keep it high level. I prefer using different colors for different projects so that it is easy to visualize the timeline.
  • The project health - the project health for each project can be changed. The project health is a chart. To mark the status red, amber or green enter 1 in the respective columns.

Multiple Project Timeline with Status Indicator

The Multiple Project Timeline Template allows displaying multiple project timelines with different phases for each project. The timeline also allows to report a % complete and has a today line indicator which gives everyone a clear idea about where the projects stand.

The PowerPoint Timeline template is divided into horizontal sections. The first section is where we have the project name and timeline. 
  • The first column will have the project names. 
  • Each phase in the project is represented by a block. The size of the block should reflect the length of that project phase.
  • Each block can have one of the 3 statues.  Red is for delayed, Amber is for possible delays and Green is for all good. Coloring the project phases as per the status gives the report reader a clear picture of where the issue is.
  • There is a today line which needs to be update every time the timeline is  published. It provides a reference to know where the projects are in relation to the current date.
  • You can change the timeline to a longer duration by making it quarterly or make it shorter by making it in a weekly or fortnightly basis.
