The very first thing you should do—even before downloading and installing Timelinize—is start gathering your data. This step can take the longest because we're at the mercy of the services that have your data. Some services can take days to export your data.

While you're collecting your data, you can ensure your system meets requirements. If it does, install Timelinize.

Once you have your data, you're good to run Timelinize and start your first imports.
