Adding entities and relationships
Adding your first entity
Aeon Timeline allows you to associate events with people, locations, projects, story arcs, and more – collectively these are known within Aeon Timeline as entities.
Entities have a name and a type (e.g. Person, Location), and can optionally have dates of birth and death.
Once you start adding entities into your timeline, you can start to capture more information, tell more complex stories, and unlock the true power of your timeline.
Relationships represent a connection between an event and an entity. This may represent a particular person was present at an event, or an event belongs to a particular story arc or project.
Relationships are many-to-many, meaning each event can have relationships with multiple entities, and each entity may have relationships with multiple events.
When specifying a relationship, you also specify the role that the entity fulfils for that event. Many entity types may only allow a single role, but some types may have multiple roles – for instance, a person may be a participant in an event, or just a witness.
Once you have added an entity, you will be able to associate it with events via the Inspector:
