Working with the Timelineโ€‹

The timeline is interactive. Click the buttons in the top left to filter data based on a specific time window. Select the appropriate button to display data by:

  • D = day
  • W = week
  • M = month
  • 6M = 6 months
  • Y = year
  • 5Y = 5 years

The left side of the timeline is divided into two parts: Medication and Event. Prescribed medications display as colored lines covering the dates of the prescriptions. The most recent dates are at the top. Hover on the circle with the abbreviation to expand the medication information and see the medication name and dosage.

The right section of the timeline is the Recent Activity section. It displays active medications and conditions or the most recent labs.


Remember to use the filter button on both sides of the timeline to determine which data to display in both the left side and the Recent Activity section.

Favoriting Dataโ€‹

You can favorite datapoints in graphs and tables. Mark favorite data with a yellow star to designate it as a favorite datapoint. This favorited data shows up on the timeline when the "Favorites" box is selected under the filter button.

To select a favorite datapoint in a table, you must add a "Favorites" column in the table. To add the column, open the table module settings and create a column called Favorites. When configuring the column, use the dropdown to select "Favorites" to configure the column with the yellow star selection feature, as shown below.

Timeline Favorites Table

To select a favorite datapoint in a graph, you must enable the "detailed tooltip" feature. Visit the detailed section on using the detailed tooltip and follow the procedure to turn the feature on. Once enabled, you can click on the star shape of a favorite datapoint, turning the star yellow. This marks the datapoint as a favorite, as shown below.
