- Go to the Elements panel and type the “timeline” text in the search field. Here you can see the two types of block: vertical and horizontal timelines.
- Choose the one, which suits the design and concept of your website to most, and drag and drop it on the newly created section. As an example, we took a vertical timeline.

- Let’s leave three cards in our timeline. Make them animated, and set the other values as you wish.
- Come back to the card settings and click on the card to start editing.
- Write down the title and meta of your card. You can also showcase a little description according to the topic. Decide whether you want to show an image or not.
- Choose between the icon or text point content type. In case you prefer icons, you can pick one from the icon library. You can also set a button, its text and add a link.
- Don’t forget to click the “Update” button to save the changes.
- As a next step, let’s move to the Style tab. In this tab, you are able to set all the options according to the style of your timetable block.
- You are completely free to set a border and customize it. As well as the background color and box-shadow of the cards.
- Make some changes to the typography of the block, both title and description.
