Timeline in PPT


What would be the best way to create this timeline?

Here are a few facts:

  • I'm using a PPT timeline template shared by an Articulate Community member.  Thank you!
  • I'm creating my lesson in PPT with the plans of uploading into Storyline.  
  • Should I fully build the attached timeline in PPT or wait and build in Storyline?  For instance, should each marker be a layer?  If not, what are some paths to building out this timeline? I sense the text I need to insert is greater than the space provided for text. 
  • I'm attaching the original PPT Timeline for reference. 

Thank you for your help!

Hello Holly, you might have forgotten to include the attachment.

Without seeing the attachment, I tend to build these in Storyline vs going the PPT import route, just because it gives me more flexibility in development to do some of the things I can't do in PPT, such as your comment about using layers in SL.

Additionally I used to find that there was some re-work I'd have to do in SL after making my import, but like I said it's been a while since I've done it so it's possible that import is much better now.
