What is Timeline?
Timeline is a chronological list of each Behavior or Reward recorded in your school. It’s great for understanding what's happening in real-time with Students and Teachers throughout the building.
In this article, we cover the information you see on Timeline, and ways you can filter Timeline to dig into the details of your data.
Navigate to Timeline
Timeline is one of the reporting tools in Insights.
Click on a row to see more details including:
The date and time the point or reward was recorded
The location of the point
The roster being viewed when the point or reward was recorded
The value of the point or reward
The type: merits, demerits, or rewards
The name of the behavior that was recorded
The student(s) who earned the point
A comment, if included with the point
The name and profile picture/initials of the teacher who recorded the point or reward
An undo button (for merits and demerits. See how to remove a reward here)
You can undo any Point you’ve recorded (admins can undo Points recorded by anyone), by clicking the X next to the record on Timeline.
You can filter Timeline to see everything recorded for a specific Behavior, Student, Teacher, or show only merits, demerits, or rewards.
You can also set multiple filters, like in the example above. For example, you could set a filter to see all merits for one or multiple students issued by a specific teacher.
Just click on the heading of the column for what you'd like to filter. You can add multiple filters to the same column too.
Change the Timeframe
Timeline is always sorted chronologically, but you can change the timeframe to view Points recorded during a specific time.
Click the time selector in the top right corner and choose from one of our preset or custom timeframes:
This week - Points earned since Monday
This month - Points earned since the 1st of the month
Year to Date - Points earned since July 1st of last summer
Custom - choose specific dates, maybe to see Points for a week, quarter, or semester.
Download a Timeline CSV
Click "Download" in the bottom right corner to download a CSV of the Timeline you're viewing. Your filters and timeframe will be reflected on the CSV.
Timeline Settings – Sounds, Desktop Notifications, and Separate Rows
Timeline is a powerful tool for administrators to see what's happening throughout the building in real time and has options for sounds and desktop notifications to alert you when a Behavior is recorded.
Click Settings, then turn Desktop Alerts and Sounds to "On." If you minimize LiveSchool (while Timeline is open), every time a Behavior is recorded you'll hear a "ding," and see a desktop notification like in the video above.
Timeline Settings also enable you to Separate Rows. When a Behavior is recorded for multiple students (or multiple Behaviors for one or more students), you usually see a student's name and "4 MORE" listed next to the student (example below). Turning Separate Rows to "on" places all of those students onto their own row in Timeline, and separates the rows if you need to download a Timeline CSV as well.
