TimeLine Widget

The popular Timeline widget introduced in the Alert Page revamp from Release 8.7.0 is now available for you to use in your own Activeboards!  

The Timeline widget is a graphic representation of items sequenced in chronological order along a time line. This chart will allow you to monitor how dated items are located over time.


  • Time line is represented through a horizontal axis from left (oldest) to right (most recent)
  • 2 Item Types
    • Date: items that represent data in a specific date or a point.
    • Duration: items that represent data with a specific “from … to” duration
  • Item Groups can be used to visually group selected items.  Groups and subgroups are represented on the vertical axis.

This new widget has many customization options covered in our documentation.

Running operations at the widget level

We have added running operations at the Widget level to improve performance even further.  These new operations are accessible through new clickable icons and are located at the right side of the widget header.

  • Real-time allows the user to run the widget query in real-time mode.
  • Refresh allows the user to run the widget query again.
  • Abort allows the user to stop a widget query that is currently running.
