Introduction

Timelines are one of they most important concepts in Clarify, this is where you will likely spend most of your time in the product. The structure of a timeline consists of some key elements that its important to understand, so let's start by breaking down the individual pieces of a timeline and discuss how to interact with each of them.

Timelines combine time series data with human context
## Navigation bar Right on the top of the UI you will find the navigation bar, this isn't technically part of the timeline, but it's important as this is how you move around our product. Click the |Clarify| logo in the top left corner to access the list of available timelines in your organization, or click the name of your organization in the top right corner to bring up the organization settings (admins only). You can also get help at any time by pressing the button labeled "support".
The navigation bar on top is how you move around Clarify.

Timeline header

Just below the navigation bar is the timelines header. Here you can find or change it's name and sharing settings.

From the timelines header you can change its sharing settings and name.

Comments

The next area we'll cover is the comment section, here you will see all comments that has been added to the timeline. To open a comment, simply click it. This will open a panel that shows you the original comment, as well as any replies that has been added. Read more about comments on web or mobile.

The comments area shows all comments for the timeline.

Time

As we briefly saw when looking at comments, just below the comment section you'll find an element that shows the time.

You can view the time which is shown on screen, and even interact with it here.

Now lets take a look at a video showing us panning and zooming to see how the time changes, as well as demonstrating how you can select a period of time.
