To add to Mortens info; you can use the layers to achieve 2 types of progressive display:
1. showing each item (say in construction areas) by itself in sequence.
Do this by using the Show Layer, either in separate clips, one for each layer, or using keyframes in 1 clip and keyframing for each Show Layer. Make first clip before either method a hide all item layers.
2. show all items progressively, so items appear as added to the previous.
Do this by hide all clip, then a clip for each item hiding less layers in each clip, e.g. hide 2,3,4,5 then hide 2,3,4 then hide 2,3 etc so that more layers are being shown. It's not possible to do this in keyframes so needs to be on separate clips.
Attached sample vid showing: show separate items, 1st using spearate clips, then using single keyframed clip, then show progressive show.
Also L2.1B3 scene and library files so you can see in the scene how things can be built up.
