What is Aeon Timeline?

The timeline tool for creative writing, project & case management.

Aeon Timeline started as a discussion between a group of writers, and since then, the application has continued to grow and expand to suit their needs. Whether you are in the opening stages of planning a novel, in the final stages of editing, or anywhere in between, Aeon Timeline has tools and features to help you understand your characters, avoid plot holes and inconsistencies, and visualise your story in new ways.

If you are looking for a simple, intuitive and flexible way to manage your next project, Aeon Timeline is the tool for you. A little like a Gantt chart but a lot more flexible, Aeon version 2 has been rewritten from the ground up to allows you to plan multiple projects and keep them up to date throughout their lifetime.

Aeon Timeline has been used for a range of tasks, including mapping key witness statements and testimony, creating a visual display of key components of architecture.

Yes, I am a fan. I found Aeon using while looking for a program to compile a complex legal timeline. Aeon was just what I needed. It allows the user to create a timeline using absolute times and dates, or to create one where everything is relative. This may seem a bit odd, until you realize that Aeon is able to assist fiction authors and play writes to create and track complex fictional story lines as part of the authoring process.

My use of Aeon was somewhat niche in that I needed to track financial transactions between more than 30 bank accounts over a seven year period as part of an asset and income tracing legal case. Because Ason accepts csv imports, I was able to download bank transaction statements electronically and massage the data before importing it directly into Aeon. This shortened up my analysis and allowed the identification and visualization of money flowing between the various bank accounts in what was an intentional attempt to hide origins and destinations. Aeon is so robust that I was able to load thousands of individual transactions and then track each one.

A review of Aeon would not be complete without mention of Matt Tobin, the developer. Matt and his team are providers of excellent support for their product and are happy to work with customers to help them get the most out of Aeon. I cannot thank them highly enough for the support they provided to me.

As I said from the outset, yes I am a fan. Aeon is probably the best value software purchase I have ever made and it has already paid for itself many time over. Before you go to the big players, give Aeon a try. You will not be disappointed.
