The slider and slider track are useful for quickly navigating to any point in time on a
For the CIO Roadmap, the slider track allows you to quickly view the distribution of projects
over time and determine project states. While in 3D view, click and drag the slider to move the
timeline forward or backward. In 2D view, click and drag the slider track right or left to move
the timeline forward or backward.
The slider track provides an alternative view of panels on a visualization. For the CIO
Roadmap, a colored dot in the slider track indicates the presence of one or more projects for a
given day. The different dot colors correspond to different project states. This allows you to
scan the slider track to identify projects of interest by their color, and then use the slider or
slider track to quickly navigate to those projects. For example, if you are interested in
projects that are in a pending state, you can use the slider to navigate to the colored dots that
represent that state.
Note: Dots in the slider track do not correspond one-to-one with panels in a
visualization. A dot represents the presence of one or more projects on a given date. In 3D
view, if there is more than one project for a given day, all of the projects for that day are
combined into a single panel on the roadmap. When the slider track is populated, projects in a
multi project panel are analyzed for project state and then represented as appropriately colored
dots in the slider track.
Similarly, you can use the slider or slider track in conjunction with the calendar to quickly
navigate to any point in time. For example, if you are concerned about resource issues in April
2014 because you see a large cluster of dots during that time, dragging the slider or slider
track to those dots brings those projects into view. Click the individual panels to view
