EdrawMax gives my business instant access to tons of visualization products that each would take days to build one by one. The ease of use and tutorial videos are simply amazing. This timeline maker gives everyone on my team an opportunity to be creative, as they don’t have to worry about learning new systems. There was other software that we used in the past that was pretty complex for the new trainees, but this timeline maker takes the pressure off to create and puts the power in the hands of those with the knowledge to leverage their ability for maximum gain.

My son wanted to create his school project depicting a series of events. We first tried making it on our PC, but the features were limited. Then we Googled and found a couple of tools out of which most of them were either complex or costly. It was then that one of my son’s teachers recommended EdrawMax to create the timeline. I must say - I was not disappointed. This timeline maker is pretty simple to use, and there are so many templates that make the design process utterly simple. I highly recommend EdrawMax as your next timeline maker for any of your next projects.

I love the easy-to-use functionalities of EdrawMax, especially the free timeline templates that make it easy to modify and customize for your own series of events. The object library is very expensive, and one can easily find whatever shape you are looking for to display your timeline diagram. This timeline maker is also very easy to share with your colleagues who are not actively using the system, with access to download the timeline diagrams as JPEG, PNG, or even as a PDF file.
