Saving timelines

All timelines are saved to your account, so you must be signed in in order to save.

The save button is located on the white header bar as shown in the screenshot below:

Click on the save button to show a drop down menu with the two save options.

Save options

The following save options are available:

Save new

Use this option to:
  • save a timeline you've just made, or
  • save a copy of an existing timeline

Save Changes

Use this option to:
  • update a timeline that you've created.
Any links to your timeline or embedded versions will automatically show the latest version of the timeline after you save changes.

There is currently no way to go back to a previous version of a timeline, so be very careful when saving changes!

Note: The 'save changes' option is only active if one of your own timelines are loaded - it will be greyed out if you are making a new timeline or have a timeline loaded that was made by another user.

Naming your timeline

After selecting either saving option, you will be  prompted to give the timeline name.

If you are saving changes to a timeline, the previous name will be present in the text input box. You can change this if you would like to rename the timeline as part of the edit.

After naming the timeline, click on 'save' to finish. You can select cancel at any time to abort the save.

Accessing your saved timelines

Every timeline you save will be stored in the 'My Timelines' section of your account.
When you're signed in, you can find all of your saved timelines by clicking on the  symbol next to your display name, then selecting 'My Timelines' from the drop down menu.
