Hi team 

In the MS Project timeline view, can you change the formats to quarter (year) intervals instead of fortnightly ones?

Many thanks

James -- From your description, it sounds like you are using the new Project for the Web application rather than the Microsoft Project desktop application. Assuming that is the case, there are only three available levels of zoom in the Timeline view, which are days, 2-week periods, and months. there is no way to change this, but perhaps Microsoft will eventually add more levels of zoom for us. Hope this helps.
Hi Dale
I'm actually using MS Project desktop. I can't change the date formats on the timeline view (above the schedule). I hope that makes sense.
Many thanks for this

Solution
James -- Click anywhere in the Timeline pane that displays your Timeline view, then click the View tab to display the View ribbon. In the Zoom section of the View ribbon, set the level of zoom you want to see in the Timeline view. Hope this helps.
Thanks for this Dale. It's a bit small :) but it works.
