 I know it's possible to move the position of iterations within a timeline, but I'm curious to see if timelines themselves can be moved position wise.


Timeline 1
Timeline 2
Timeline 3


Timeline 1
Timeline 3
Timeline 2

The only control you currently have over the order in which the timelines are displayed in the GUI is that the timeline you select as the Project Timeline is always first.   Is there some reason you care about the order in which they are displayed, or were you just wondering?

It's not a big deal if they can't be moved. I was just asking from a convenience stand point. It would be a lot easier to order timelines as needed since it would make it easier to find specific ones.

You can use the move operation. Select the iteration. Select move , Select the target is new parent and select the same parent as before. Click ok. The iteration will be moved to the top of the list.

Thanks for the reply, Zeeshan. I know iterations can be moved, but can the timelines that contain those iterations be moved? The move feature doesn't work for timelines. If I have a timeline that started on 9/30/13 can I move that to a position on the list before a timeline that started in 4/22/13?
