Timeline section aggregates all extracted items that contain time and date information and shows them again in chronological order.

Creation and modification time of files and folders extracted from the phone are excluded from the timeline because there is a lot of systems generated files and such information is not forensically interesting.

All data that you want to be shown in the timeline must be marked for extraction in its specific section. If you want a timeline to include messages, for example, you have to check the Messages section to be extracted.
