can I manually enter dates to plot on timeline

Does anyone know if google analytics allows me to add in items to the timeline so I can see events that have happen and the effect they have on traffic to the website.  For example when I apply articles on LinkedIn I can see a spike in traffic but it would be easier over time to have these timed events added in to the timeline so each time I print the report I don't have to add these in to see the effects.

Hi Bec H,

I'm inferring from your post that you may already know this but it's the only way to add in and that's by using the feature to plot on the timeline.
