Adding Events to the Roles tab

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 19:47:37 GMT

Apologies if this has already been asked. I searched but couldn't find anything. Is there a way to add an Event to the Roles tab? Like the Participant section shows the ages of my characters involved with that event but is there a way to add an event so I know how long it has been since event A to event B? The only work around I could come up with was making 'the event in question' event a Person then referencing that... I tried adding a new Entity Type but it wouldn't let me write Events as the name. Am I missing something or is this not an available option? Thanks, J

You're going about the wrong way. To find the duration between two events, hold down Shift+Alt and drag between them.

Ah, cool shortcut! Thanks. But I would also like this to be a "permanent" option, just like the Participants are always there when I click the event, do you know what I'm mean?

Don't think you can do that, but I could be wrong.

Hi, No there isn't an option to do that at the moment, we will put it on our list for something to consider in the future, however it will probably be low priority. Jess

Hi, Has this been added in yet? I've been using the shortcut, but sometimes the event in question is years away from the current event and it's frustrating to scroll through the timeline looking for it. It would be really helpful if I could add Events to the Roles tab! Thanks, J

Hi, No this has not been added yet, however we are looking to add something that will make this functionality easier in a future release. Jess
