Changing Timeline to Week Numbers

With Timelines and Gantt Charts in LucidChart, is there a way to change the time line intervals at the top of the chart from an actual date to a week number (Week 1, Week 2, etc) to show a generic timeline?

Hi @Dale, thanks for posting! Unfortunately, this sort of “generic” timeline without specific dates isn’t currently supported in Lucidspark. However, I certainly understand how this would be helpful and clarifying in certain planning scenarios, and your feedback is incredibly important to us! If you’re willing to share, we’d love to hear additional details about your use case via this thread. I’ve also converted this post to an idea so that it’s visible to others within the Product Feedback section of the community - from here, they can upvote it and add details of their own.

Finally, for more information on how Lucid manages feedback via this community, take a look at this post:


However, I do have a workaround to suggest in the meantime, which is using a Dynamic Table. Ordinarily, these tables are used for arranging objects via the attributes of your choice - for example, a tag or emoji that’s added to them. However, you can customize the labels to represent weeks (or your time block of choice). In my example below, I’ve added these as well as teams. 



From there, you can add cards, just as you would to a timeline, to plan your work.
