Visio timelines

by lunula / March 19, 2007 12:17 AM PDT

I'm trying to use Visio to create a timeline for my company's email communications. I cannot figure out a way to stop Visio from inserting dates on the timeline - I simply want to have Day 1 - Day 60 and then the milestones would fall on specific days (Day 5 or Day 14).

I've tried changing formats, time units, etc. and I as far as I can tell, this cannot be done. It *always* inserts dates and even if I change the date format to simply display the month number, then my timeline will only go to 12, even if I configure the timeline for more than one year.

This seems like a pretty standard thing, am I missing something?
