Cooperate’s timeline view helps marketers effectively manage their campaigns, team workload, create better alignment and ensure projects are delivered on time.
You can see all your work in Cooperate reflected in the timeline with the ability to drill down on each of your marketing activities to see what is happening across Channels, Brands, Teams and more.
What can I use the timeline view for?
The timeline is designed to help marketers get organised and stay on track to complete their goals, but it can also be used to accurately reflect your marketing plan and strategy.
In the timeline view, you'll be able to oversee all of your Projects and Tasks that you're working on in the Cooperate Platform.
You can choose to see this information in the timeline in a variety of ways by tweaking your Grouping and Filtering options.
Grouping is the left panel that allows you to choose how you view Projects and Tasks, Filtering allows you to choose what you want to view.
For example: If you want to see just your Team's tasks: Group by Team Members then add a task filter by Team or Team Members
If you want to see every Project that's Live in the Australian Market: Group by Market, filter the Market to Australia and then add another filter of Live Projects.
You can view the timeline across a Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly or Yearly view. Choose your timeframe from the top of the timeline.
You can jump to a specific Month or Year using the date selector.
Just select Today at anytime to jump back to the current date.
Tasks vs Project view
You can see both Projects and Tasks on the timeline.
To swap between views.
- Select the ... more icon

Project and Tasks view
Project view is the default view, which gives you a view of your Projects according to their start and end dates. You can also drop down a Project to see the Tasks within it.
Tasks only view
This show you just Tasks according to their dates.
Projects with a set timeframe will span across their relevant dates. If they have a live period, this will be reflected as a grey box within that project.
BAU Projects will span indefinitely across the timeline and are ordered at the bottom of the Project list, underneath those with a timeframe.
Numbers that show on a Project are a representation of the Tasks. All Tasks in a Project will show on their due date, you can hover over these to see what the Tasks is.
