For each event detail, double click on the event dot to enter the edit mode. Here you can choose the audio or insert a picture for the event timeline.

Finally, click OK to generate your timeline. This feature is nice however you can’t edit the timeline you just created so you will re-create it again if you need to apply changes. For this reason, there is another great plugin named Office Timeline that can be really helpful to create and edit timelines in PowerPoint easily.
