Need to Print Timeline

I’m currently using a few project management tools in free mode, testing them out. I really need to be able to print my task list and a timeline. Exporting is clunky and requires the extra steps of formatting it again in excel. If I wanted to do that I would stay in excel :wink:.
My boss wants a hard copy. Am I missing how I can do this?
Thanks!

Hi @sreilly
Right now, we don’t have the option to print the timeline, only to export to Excel. However, we are working on this feature so stay tuned for more updates soon!

Thanks :slight_smile:

Thanks so much for your reply.

That might be a deal breaker :frowning:

Have a great weekend.

Hey, I know you are looking for a printed version (I am here too because my boss wants one) however I am considering creating a timeline view of the info I want the boss to see on a Board and then sharing that view with him as a url… maybe this might work for you to?

I also really need to print a timeline and didn’t even consider that I would not be able to when I signed up with Monday.com. I read that you are working on this feature. When do you think it may be ready?

I could definitely use a nice calendar print option for my projects! @Julia-monday.com how’s that feature coming along?

Indeed, it will be a great help if we can export the Timeline view to a picture.

Hi,
We also really need this feature as our timeline is constantly updated so we need to export it multiple times to coordinate with consultants.
We’ve tried the ‘export to excel’ feature but it doesn’t look professional enough.
It would also be good if we could customize the scale of the timeline view (to show each day rather than groups of days).
Cheers,
Justin

This is a huge request as I cannot use it in its current form. Thanks for considering.

Chiming in! This feature is essential for the sort of work I do. We are required to update our client with a timeline every week.

Here’s another option while waiting for the feature to be built in, in case it’s helpful. I downloaded a Chrome extension called GoFullPage that will screencapture the entire webpage you’re looking at (not just what’s visible on screen).

I captured the entirety of my sprints/backlog in one image, then cropped out the edges of the screen and slapped it on a nice branded letterhead. This worked for me.

@Julia-monday.com Is this on the roadmap or is there updated timing? Having to print the entire web browser isn’t ideal when we already have the awesome ghant views.

Hey @CForys @Loubbelou -

At this time we don’t have any update on being able to print the timeline. We are currently working on improving some features in the Timeline but at this time we don’t have it in our current roadmap to add a native ability to print the timeline apart from the current options.

Do you think you will be adding it to your roadmap at some point? People at my company want hard copies to keep and when I export to excel I lose the items list on the side & it is clunky/doesn’t look at good?

@bradley I also really need this feature. Some of the organisations I need to share the project plans with have Monday.com blocked, so they cannot access the shared links. For me just being able to export to a .png or .jpeg file would make a world of difference. Fiddling around with an excel version defeats the purpose of using Monday.com

hey @aruggirello @merv1209

At this time we don’t have it in the roadmap but I’ll make sure to share this feedback with our Product team.

What you can do is take a screenshot of the view and save or print that view.

Another option to share the view with others is to broadcast it. Learn more about that here: How to share a board view publicly?

For me too - I really need to export a Gantt or Timeline view to a PDF. Currently working through a very cumbersome snipping exercise.

Definitely looking for this!
