I have a task list and a timeline. When I create views to sort the list, the timeline is not updated accordingly. Do you have any ideas on how to get around this?

1 Answer 1


The Timeline for a List is a simple representation of Tasks based on Dates. And it has pointers of Today, Task Dates, Start and Finish etc.

So literally, it will have no effect based on List view changes (Sorted/Filtered in your case)

Additionally, enter image description here

  • Why would anyone like to use timelines then? If I create a view with the filter, show only "wer2323r" (from your image). Then I do not want to see timelines for other tasks.

  • Filter works for sure... but not the sorting.... filter limits the no. Of items but sorting just arranges them.. and so Timeline doesn’t have impact because of sorting

  • I must be doing something wrong then, please explain how i can filter between "wer2323r" and "qwqwdqwd" and only get the matching timeline.

  • It does not work with filters. I still see the same number of timelines. Please describe how you do.

  • Aah sorry, I was wrong.. This timeline doesn't get updated even with filtering.. What you are trying achieve is not possible using out of the box but a customized solution may work here.. Refer : ozkary.com/2016/06/sharepoint-2013-adding-multiple.html
