Notion Timeline Colors Tutorial: Group By Colorful Tags & Show On Timeline

Timelines
January 1, 2024

If you're looking to add some visual interest to your Notion timelines, one way to do it is by adding color. There are two ways to add color to your timelines in Notion:

1) By adding tags to your database items; or

2) By grouping your timeline by a tag property.

In this quick tutorial, we'll talk through how to achieve both.

Adding Color To Notion Timelines with Tags

Here's how you can add some color to your Notion timeline by using tags:

  1. Navigate to your Notion timeline view of a database.
  2. Select the 'Edit View' option after clicking on the database view name.
  3. Create your 'Select' or 'Multi-select' tag group, add options, and pick your colors.
  4. Select 'Properties' from the timeline view menu, then choose to 'Show' the colorful tag groups you've created.
  5. Your Notion timeline will now show tags with the colors you've selected.

Grouping Your Timeline by Tags

You can also add color to your Notion timeline by grouping your timeline by a tag property:

  1. Navigate to your Notion timeline view of a database.
  2. Click 'Group' in the timeline edit view menu, then choose to 'Group by' the tag property you want to use for color grouping.
  3. Your Notion timeline will now be split up into groups, with each group having a different color based on the tag property you chose.

Example Use Cases

Here are some examples of how you might use color in your Notion timeline:

  • Group your timeline by project status to see which projects are on track and which need attention.
  • Color code your timeline by priority to make sure you're focusing on the most important tasks first.
  • Organize your timeline by category to see how much time you're spending on different types of tasks.

Adding color to your Notion timeline is a quick and easy way to make your data more visually appealing and easier to understand at a glance.
