Add projects and tasks to the Project Center timeline in Project Online

The timeline at the top of the Project Center provides a simple way to show all of the projects and major tasks going on in your organization. You can use this timeline to craft a visual executive summary of your portfolio of projects.

Note: In addition to Project Center, adding tasks to the Schedule page timeline is another option available in Project Web App.
