Abstract [en]

Visuzalizing time information using a timeline has been done for over 250 years.

Using a timeline can assist users in making sense of time data which could otherwise be hard to understand.

A timeline has been implemented at Ida Infront, and its purpose is to help managers understand how cases are progressing in a case management system created by Ida Infront. The timeline is designed using usability methods and has been evaluated with regards to its usability and how it interacts.

Results show that there are a number of things that can increase usability and add meaningful interaction, such as using icons to collect similar data into one point and adding filtering capabilities so that users can find interesting data faster.
