Hi Anna,

Unfortunately the timeline view on Trello doesn't offer this feature at the moment. The only additional information you can see with this view is the team members assigned to the card. Take a look here: Trello Timeline View Guide 

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help! I'm more than happy to help if you have any more questions 😊

All the best,


Laura, I know this is recent but is this stull a feature that is unavailable?

Hi @Aldus Simmons 👋

It is indeed though stay tuned as Trello release updates all the time! If I spot any changes I'll drop you a message here 😃

Have a great day!

The timeline view is the only reason I upgraded, being a very visual person I NEED the color-changing ability on the timeline.

PLEASE... when will this be active?

Same here, really need more visual aids for the timeline view. Color options would be an excellent start 😊

Same here. We would also love to manually add some colour to the timeline. It would be nice if you could use the label colour also.

Agreed, Colour is so helpful in timeline view. It would speed up efficiency when planning and ammending timelines

Yessss Pleeeeeze!

I am a content writer with ADHD and cannot function without colors, shapes, images, etc. When my clients are staring at me, I can prioritize more effectively.

Having images of them with color-coded borders gives me the flexibility of using their headshot or their color for all of the assets I create.

The board view (below) works great for me, but the timeline view (below) is a meaningless set of dots and dashes. BUT I need this view to see the distribution of my deadlines so I don't over-commit.

It would be a great start to allow stickers and/or let us toggle labels on and off - maybe that is a less complex update than adding characteristics specifically for timeline view.
