Changing timeline: From absolute (e.g. May) to relative time (e.g. Month 1)

Hey guys,

I am new to the forum and software (2.8.5 Pilsen). I want to change my timeline from showing years and months in absolute time format e.g. 2018 May, June, July…, I just want Month 1, Month 2, Month 3 etc…

Can someone of you tell me where to make the settings, or at least a workaround?

kind regards

This feature is not supported, sorry. However, what’s the use case?

Thank you for your answer. I am writing a proposal and the project start is not known yet, so the project sponsor asked for this kind of layout.

So it seems like starting project in January of year 1 (literally, 0001 AD) might be a good workaround. You can move the whole project to any date when dates become more certain.

This answer was given four years ago. Perhaps there has been an update that allows for relative timeline (weeks, months, quarters) rather than absolute dates? This feature would be very useful for business plans and proposals where the starting date is not known.
