Adding the animations

You can see we have used some PowerPoint animations to represent our timeline template attractively. So, let’s see where we have used what types of animations.

Step 01 Wipe animation

To separate each block and to point out the text box, we have used small line shapes. So, here we have added wipe animation as well and we have changed the animation direction from the effect option. Another thing, make sure you also set the proper animation timing.

Step 02 Zoom animations

The second type of animation that we have used is Zoom. In this template, we have used this particular animation in the rest of the shapes such as oval and arc. To have a better understanding, we will suggest watching the tutorial video.

Step 03 Float in animations

The last type of animation for this timeline template is float-in. We have used this animation for the entrance of the text boxes. However, make sure to change the animation direction also.
