Showing total days on Timeline Events

I can get the Start and End Dates to show up but how do I get the total number of days for each event as well to show up so when I print a timeline for my employees, they see how much time is allocated to each event?

I don't think that's an option. In the project managers part of the web site, Matt describes AT2 as being "A little like a Gantt chart". It's more powerful in some ways but isn't really a drop in replacement for something like Microsoft Project. What I've done in the past is put the duration in the title, so I'd have something like "User Acceptance Testing (14d). It's a kludge, but it works for small projects. I'd bring this up with Matt and perhaps request it as a feature.

Thanks so much. Great Idea... I had put them in the summary and then clicked on open so you can see it but it takes so much room. I'm going to try your way and then put in a request for that feature... Thanks again

Hi, razyr is correct, you are unable to display the duration of the event at the moment. However we understand how this would be useful for users (especially for project management) and will look into adding something that would automatically add this to events in the future. Jess

When the Aeon Timeline team say "we'll look into adding this", they're not just paying lip service to customers. Five days after this was requested they released Version 2.2.5 which includes not only this feature but a bunch of bug fixes. Thanks, guys!
