How much I know about this there are 30 dissimilar date formats obtainable for a timeline on the other hand the alternative that you are appearing for is not element of these standard date formats. Timeline and milestone shapes are profoundly protected through ShapeSheet formulas. So it would break the resolution and automation even if I have to manually edit the shapes to comprise information like Day 1 through Day 60. I am frightened I don't have any additional way to generate timeline chart with no dates.

That has been an extended term demand and it still has up till now to be put into practice. To get just about it, you can conceal the dates by setting the text color to Red. The date is still present, but Red on Red does not print. You afterward necessitate to insert own Day 1, Day 2 and so on text shapes. With Visio's position and sharing abilities, it should not be too hard to insert your individual text. You may wish to allocate the text to a novel layer so that you do not accidently shift the dates. This of course is just single method to do it and I am certain the Visio specialists can come with a lot of additional work around.

To keep away from having to insert further layers,
  1. You can just choose the date
  2. Right click and choose Format-Text
  3. After that place the Transparency to 100 percent
At the present the date will be imperceptible and color unbiased, but the Description will still come into view and automatically shift while you make adjustments. You can insert your "Day N" to the Description. If you choose the Description with your mouse, you can make use of the Enter key while you are typing if you wish to place it on a novel line. In the same way with the Description chosen
  • You can right click and choose Format-Text-Paragraph and reduce the Spacing earlier than to vertically center the Description.
I have completed something alike to demonstrate period somewhat than dates.

Edit the shapes to ?not format the dates?. Alter the masters, but keep in mind to construct a backup of the unique shapes or just generate fresh ones. Every shape has a User property or 2 of the form User. Mask. Adjust the mask so it says "n". On the inside, dates are amassed as genuine numbers with the number on behalf of the date and the decimal part the portion of the day that is hours or Minutes or Second.

Re: How to remove dates from timeline in Visio 2007

Timelines can be shaped by selecting the agenda template category and selecting metric or US units. They can be tremendously helpful where a general idea is necessary rather than a comprehensive project plans. They are frequently given to non technical people or superior management boards to supply an obvious visual suggestion of period, events and significant phases within a project. I newly had an enquiry from somebody who had a timeline which was to be utilized additional than once. Her circumstances were that the timeline would be utilized across quite a lot of dissimilar markets, and at a number of dissimilar times, so even though all the stages of the project would be the same in every case, the timings would not.
