English version?

Emmanuel,

Great format - I'd love to have it in English if possible... If you don't want to translate but are willing to post the source file I'd be happy to do it...

thanks!

would be great to have in english

again, i'm not sure that i'd move back to it from electronic, but if it's free i'd give it a shot in my circa.

Looks good

Could we have a larger version of the thumbnail too? Just to better see how you used it.

I add the "planner user"

I think is more readable than the thumbnail.
Translation is on the way !...

Thanks

I appreciate the "planner user". It gives me a lot of ideas.

Très très intéressant.

Très très intéressant. Pas du tout ce que j'ai besoin, mais vraiment intéressant. Beau design.

Rough translation...

Argh. Sorry - I translated the previous post before realizing the form was in French.

Yes - an English version

Yes - an English version would be great. Could you post the source files so we can do our own translations? Thanks.

English version with option to change dates?

This layout looks great! Is there any chance an English version will be ready in the near future? Also is there a way to change the dates on it, I would love to be able to start using the pages now but the dates don't start till the new year.

Great pages. Any chance for

Planner Pad Agenda Format A5

Emmanuel17 - Thanks for this form - nice work.

Would you be able or willing to post an 'unlocked' version of the pdf, so that we could edit it? (Or is there an easy way of which I'm not aware?) Pity us English-readers and form tinkerers.

Thanks.

Planner Pad

I really like the template you made, Emmanuel! Is there any way I can get a version of it (like Word or Exel) that is not PDF so that I can make a few adjustments? I've been using Week at a Glance and an additional system or two to stay organized, but I am on a hunt to find somthing similar to Planner Pad that I can customize without starting from scratch. (I'm not that great with Excel, yet.) I would like to enter recurring dates (like work schedule, birthdays and reminders, etc.) so that I don't have to keep rewriting them every year. I wish there was some kind of computer software with lots of planner templates and you could customize them, enter in your personal dates and data, and then either print them yourself or have them printed in a binder style! I'd like it to be something I wouldn't have to enter the next year. I know what I want (like a paper version of a Palm), I just can't find it and don't have the skills to make it easily. I've spent 7 hours hunting the internet. I have a Mac, which also complicates things. Any ideas out there?

Maybe our own...

...code wizard, ygor, will take a look at it--this template seems to be pretty popular!

-Jon

I could look, but...

I may be stepping across legal boundaries if I made a Dynamic Template out of it. Remember that I do have Doug's permission/license to copy his.

Aha...

Is this form that much like the originals? (It's been a while since I looked at the "real thing" and don't remember what they look like!)

-Jon

OOo template

I post the OpenOffice.org original template. I put this form under the Public Documentation Licence, so you can use it, change it as you want.
Have fun ;-)

Plannerpads .ods

Sorry to bother, but how do you use this in OpenOffice?

The purpose of this template is to be print

So, in OOo you just have to change the initial date of the template and print it.
After it's a story about paper and pens ;-)

Thank You!

Thank you very much for this terrific template and for the .ods file. I really appreciate your work. Thank you.

Your designs

This is exactly what I have been looking for! Thank you!

This is awesome, merci mille

This is awesome, merci mille fois! I've been using TimeSystem forever, and somehow I didn't feel it fit my needs anymore. Can't say I have ever heard of PlannerPad before, but what you have done here is exactly what I want. I'm looking forward to 2008 when I can start using it.

Use it right now !

You can use the OpenOffice template to make the few last 2007 weeks and starts using it now
Enjoy :)

Still confused

how do you open the .ods file in Open Office as a template?

d -> t

Change the d (Document) in .oDs for a t (template)

Thanks, but....

When I download the file it saves as a .zip

Where is the .ods?

Nevermind !!

I just changed the .zip to .ots and it works great!! Thanks

Oh Oh!!

Is there a simple way to make this letter in lieu of A5?

Has Anyone Found A Way?

To print this GREAT form in like... Classic Size.

Sorry to be so dense. Thanks.
WB

Scale to page

It's fairly simple to do, actually.

In Adobe Reader, somewhere in its print window, is the option to both change the page size and to then scale the page to that new page size. So, if you choose 1/2 Letter size (Classic), simply check the option to scale the A5 size to 1/2 Letter. I would make sure that scaling larger is also turned on. The same holds true for printing on a full letter-sized page. Yes, everything will be blown up to fit that size, but you should get _something_, even if it's not a perfect fit, it should all be there...

Oh, and it's possible to do the same in Mac OS via the standard Mac print dialog window. It's under the "Paper Handling" section.

-Jon

A template for confusion

Are you perhaps getting confused with the overloaded meaning of Template? Here the word is meant as "pro forma" whereas OOo means a sample layout for a document. As others have mentioned coverting one ot the other is as simple as changing the last character of the file type.

This template is awesome

This is exactly what I was looking for and for my purposes it does not require any tailoring either - so thank you!

LOVE THIS FORMAT.....1/2 letter size possible?

I really love this format. Would it be too difficult to create a PDF for half letter? Can I format the print instructions to reduce the size to half letter?

Thank you.

Half Letter DIY/ Open Office format

I am a self proclaimed computer idiot who knows little to nothing about different document/template formats.

When I try to open the (ods) files I get a sea of random characters.

Do I need to download a different reader for this format? If so where would I get it, and does it come with the 'for dummies' instructions? :-)

Thanks for helping this paper addict try to assimilate into the electronic world!

Print Junior Size

When I open a pdf file and click print, I choose to print "multiple pages per page" and then choose 2. This will reduce the doc to 2 pages per letter size page which is what you are looking for. OR you can go to printer settings (after clicking print) and choose A5 as the document size instead of Letter and it will print the 1/2 page letter (Junior or Classic) size.

Hope that helps!

Thank You!

I was considering purchasing the Planner Pad but I wasn't sure if I'd really like it. Plus, I wanted a really cool cover and wanted it to look creative. :-) Thanks so much for sharing the pdf. Now, I can make my own!

Works great in Junior size... now.... double-sided

Dear Nay-nay, How do you get the pdf to print double-sided so the the weeks work out right?

Emmanuel17, I love your template so much-Can I have your baby??

Seriously,

I have tried more time management systems than I can count. Plannerpads is the only one which works for my ADHD, hyper-focused mind. Working off a paper copy of my calendar/to do/priorities list is essential. Too many distractions on a computer or PDA.

This template is perfect because I can insert and deleted rows in the sections according to my needs, and use excel functions to auto fill from my to do lists.

I tried to create it myself a few times, but always end up struggling with format-and give up.

THANKYOU!THANKYOU!THANKYOU!

2009 Calendar

Emmanuel, will you be making a calendar for 2009? Can you please share? :-)

Download the ODS file

If you download the AgendaPerso_GTD_en.ods file you can use it to generate pages for yourself. Enter a start data and the OpenOffice.org spreadsheet setups up printable pages for four weeks onward from that date. (Actually clever enough to adjust the date backwards if necessary; I used 1/1/2009 and the spreadsheet gave me a page commencing on MOnday 28 Dec 2008.)

Thanks! I'm going to

Thanks! I'm going to attempt this. :-) I may be back with questions though.

reiterate request for 2009!

Dear Emmanuel

PLEASE can I repeat the request for the 2009 calendar in English - am about to download openoffice and try to make it myself but.....

update on use of OpenOffice

Well, I have managed to install OpenOffice and opened the AgendaPerso_GTD_en file in - then changed the date as prompted to get the first four weeks that I want - so am feeling slightly proud of myself. However, as a newbie, I am getting confused with how to print on both sides - am using the A5 format - do I print out the odd pages first, turn over and then print out the evens?

Will have a play - should be doing some work but this seems like a better thing to do.

Sorry - solved problem!

Thanks - but the simplest solution is the best - cut paper FIRST! and reduce the level of options that the printer (the apparent non-thinking part of this partnership) has to play with. I am now totally over the top with the agenda - have altered it slightly (more space in diary area, less in projects etc), added colour coding and am sadly presently putting arrows over the times when I lecture (which are the fixed points in life) - this is all so I can justify purchasing the £32 hole punch for the filofax A5 (and the new filofax!) by reducing the cost of having to buy diary inserts!

Your purchase is well justified.....

Just came across this planner and really like it. Great that you can personalise it too.

Sounds like the £32 is a great investment. Say diary pages are a fiver a year, you'll have your money back pretty much by 2014 ;-)

I think any stationery item doesn't need to be justified....

Can anyone tell me where I

Can anyone tell me where I can download the AgendaPerso_GTD_en.ods file? I've downloaded Open Office but am having quite a time finding this file? It's not Open Office, it's me. Forgive my inexperience, any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Finding the file

Anyone know where I can find the AgendaPerso_GTD_en.ods file? Thanks in advance

Try contacting the author

If you go thru Google, you can see where it used to be. It was removed on or about 9 September. Only the author or an admin can do that.

It was not me.

Thank you

PS. Thanks for the info Ygor.

Planner Pad solution

I really like the Planner Pad format, too, especially after I quit using them for a couple years. I planned to buy a new set this fall but am put off by the "special" price. It's Sept and the "special" for Apr08-March09 verion is still more than 1/2 price for a full year. Used to be you could get some undated or end of year pages free or for a few bucks if you bought a complete new year.

The Planner Pad style templates others created and graciously uploaded to DIY are nice but pages are too small for my good leather Personal Pages size binder. However, I did come up with a solution...and without spending hours of trial and error trying to create my own template.

I found an old spiral bound Planner Pad from 2003 in my files, and luckily found a two page (one week) spread with only a few notes and used white out to delete them.

Then I:
1. Scanned each side of the two pages into a separate graphic files.
2. Inserted them into Publisher to re-add a few blocked out lines.
3. Placed white boxes over any lingering smudges.
4. Placed a box over the old tiny monthly calendars in the bottom corner of the right hand page.
5. For each page of graphics, selected all and grouped the image into one image per page.
6. Choose Save Picture and resaved each jpeg image, one left page and one right.

I inserted the two images into two different pages in Word, used narrow margins and right align for the righthand page, and left align for the lefthand one. Then printed both pages out on nice bright white paper. There's plenty of room for 3 or 7 ring hole punching. Or you can rescale the image to fit a Circa size. And, saved the Word file as docx, doc and template formats. :)

I'm pretty happy with the quality of the print out even though I need to hand-write the months, week spans dates, and daily dates. I'm planning to have copies made on decent weight paper. Just need to trim paper a bit, punch and I'm ready.

I considered uploading my images but since I didn't create anything, just scanned in originals I figured that would be a copyright violation. But, I thought others here might like be interested in my DIY solution. :)

desperate for 2009 version

desperate for 2009 version of this - have loved using this in 2008. Have searched for the .ods file and can't find - Can anyone help out with this???

Hi, this is a really great

Hi, this is a really great template, great find. Will anyone out there kindly post the 2009 version? Not very computer savvy and dont think I know how to change the files myself...

Is there a way to update this calendar for 2009?

Or is there a 2009 version out there in the cosmos? I used the 2008 version in my Circa and loved it. It worked very well for me. Someone did design a "dateless" version but it is in letter size and I don't know how to convert it to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" or even A5.
TIA.

Planner Pad Customized - Undated/Word

If anyone's interested, I have a PlannerPadish layout that is undated and Word based. Can be tweaked to your heart's content. Comes Portfolio layout but works equally well in Landscape. I prepare one of these each week and put it in the front of my Rollabind dayplanner. It can also be adapted to those who don't need the Appointments section.

I'll be glad to email it to interested parties, unless someone can tell me how to attach it here.

LSan
PS - I just discovered another thing to love about Rollabind: over the last few years my life has been a wild rollercoaster ride of Many Appointments one month or quarter and next to none the following quarter, depending on nonprofit activities and aging parent's health. I finally realized what I needed was NOT to use the "2 page per day" standard layouts, but something that kept my appointments separate AND would allow me to go from using a 2-year planning calendar with tiny squares (kept in my purse) to a full Letter-sized or Classic page and back again as needed. Rollabind has been the answer to my dreams!! A week or so ago I created a Letter-sized Rollabind planner, then discovered it was too big for convenient lap-holding so switched to the "Classic" of "Junior" size. In a traditional paper dayplanner that switch would have necessitated completely re-punching every page AND trimming pages down to size. Because it was a Rollabind dayplanner with mixed page sizes, I was able to simply turn the Letter-sized pages and Circa punch the TOP of the page, then fold it and insert the page back onto the discs. When I was done I removed the 2 unneeded discs (Letter uses 11, Classic uses 8 but for various reasons mine uses 9) and voila! a Classic sized Rollabind dayplanner with limited re-punching. Time to completion: less than 15 minutes.
How does this work with my calendar needs? I can print my Outlook calendar in Compact size, which fits perfectly in my purse, but, when needed, I can also insert those pages into my Rollabind day planner as I switch to larger appointment pages temporarily, when needed, then go back to the pocket calendar again down the line, and my Rollabind dayplanner will ultimately store all the pages in one notebook. Rollabind adapts to my needs, not me to Rollabind. A very freeing feeling since I'm one of those quirky must-look-at-every-dayplanner people as well. However, that's lessened greatly since I started focusing on what I needed and looking to myself and Rollabind to create it.

Let me know if anyone wants the calendar - I'll be glad to share it. :-)

Go for it !

I'm not the one to tell you how to do that, but I am going to send you my email via your contact page, if you'd be so kind to send me a copy.

Priority Planner LS

Okay, I think I've done it - I've submitted a template for the first time EVER! If I did it correctly, maybe, God-willin', the Priority Planner LS will be approved and uploaded. Keep your eyes pealed! :-)

A clarification

I just realized I said "since I started focusing on what I needed and looking to myself and Rollabind to create it." While that's technically true, I have to give credit and thanks to all you other planner-makers out there, including The Big Folk (D*I*Y, DayTimers, Covey, GTD, etc). I've learned a lot from you guys and found it to be true what someone told me once: "No success you've ever achieved has ever been totally your own doing. Somewhere along the way you learned something from someone else, or learned a skill necessary to your activities leading to success (like reading and writing), or were handed a gift of advice, skill, time, or talent. If nothing else, your success is ultimately rooted in the fact that your parents gave you life. Be grateful - and humble."

That's certainly been true of the Priority Planner LS, though whether it will be a "success" remains to be seen. Meanwhile, my heartfelt thanks to all of you over the years who've contributed to my being able to analyze what I need and to my knowing how to create it.

Planner Pad Customized - Undated/Word

Great work so glad you made

Great work so glad you made a version for 09/10. Any chance you can post or email me the ods file of the full agenda?

The ODS is there

-----------------------------------
"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson)

FOR THE FULL AGENDA. I'm

FOR THE FULL AGENDA. I'm asking for the ods. file for the full agenda from 2009-2010.
I need to get it printed and it wouldn't be plausible to bring in 12 separate documents for 12 separate months.

Unless someone can tell me how I can duplicate the month given into a full year on a single Open Office Document...using the ods. file listed.

Love it!

I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE this planner layout and I've been using for several months. Sometime, I'd like to play with
- adding a rotating inspirational quote or scripture for each week.
- changing the colors
- adding a picture.
(If anyone wants to do the work for me, be my guest!)

ODS FOR FULL AGENDA

I know that the ods is there.

What I'm requesting is the ods file for the FULL AGENDA from 2009-2010.

I want to get it printed and can't seem to add extra rows on to make a full document on my own. Unless someone can suggest how to do this so it won't be 12 separate documents.

You can Do It Yourself...

After all, this is DIY-Planner :)

The ODS file (a spreadsheet) generates 4 pages at a time, 2 weeks per page
All you have to do is set the date at the top

That's how it works. If someone else did it for you, it would not be DIY, it would be DIFSE (do it for someone else)

You might tinker with the ODS file to see if you can extend it by copy/paste or something like that.
-----------------------------------
"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson)

About all anybody....

.... can offer you is advice on how to do it yourself. The file only makes a few weeks at a time. That was how it was designed. If you want to do all at once, I would recommend doing the following. Create your year, one month at a time, creating 12 pdf files. Then, find a pdf tool (there's one online, even, but I forget it's name) and combine all 12 files into one. Otherwise, I know of no other way.

n-up? (pdfsam)

Hi Ygor,
I am not exactly sure what you mean. If you care to explain I will try and find you an answers.

N-Up = Imposition

Classic 2-up == Letter

A5 2-up == A4

You can do a 4-up of 3x5's on a letter or A4

Impossible imposition

Arh, I see what you mean. That would have been cool.
No I do not believe PDFsam can do that. I believe the program just looks for page-breaks in the PDF files and then split/extract pages according to what you ask it to.
The same goes for the merging. It probably removes overhead info and creates/merges a new file on a simple byte level.
There is - AFAIK - no design or advanced rules in the PDFsam.

You probably have to go to Adobe Acrobat Professional to be able to do so.

Enhancing PDF colour

I uploaded the ods file. however, after doing this, the lines print very faint almost as if they are not there at all. Any idea how I can fix this?

Thanks for sharing the ods

Thanks for sharing the ods file!
I customized it based on my preference-by moving the daily things to to above appointments.
The ods file has for 5 weeks, how can I make it in one shot for full year and make one single pdf for entire 2010..?

Kindly advise. thanks!

The form is for creating 4 weeks at a time...

... You simply have to create pdfs and combine them using other software. There is software for both Mac and Windows (and I believe Linux has something, too) as well as web sites that will do this for you. Otherwise, you can print out four weeks, change the date, print the next four, and so on.

thanks for your response. I

thanks for your response.
I was able to merge the PDFs, however since every 4 weeks, based on the template, there is a Front cover page and last empty page..
how do you eliminate those extra pages and make it similar to 2010 full year pdf file posted in this forum.

Thanks
B

delete?

I would suspect that the program you used to merge can also delete pages? If you are using printing to make the pdf files, try just printing the pages you need, and skipping the first and last pages.

Planner in Excel

I developed very similar one in EXCEL format as I found the Open Office to be excuciatingly slow.
please let me know how I can upload it

How do I scale this template from A4 to A5/Classic

Emmanuel - many many thanks for your hard work on the 2010 sheets. It is very much appreciated.

When I did a test print this morning, the sheets came out as A4, although you title them as A5.

Can someone help out here please. How do I scale the sheets down from A4 to A5? Or is that even possible?

Best Wishes
David

Which format are you printing ?

PDF or ODS ?
You should be able to set the page size to print for either.

Thank you very much for updating this for 2010! :D

2011 PDF Version?

I love this planner.....I have been using it for almost a year. However, as I am getting ready to bind up my next school year planner, the Open Office doc will not allow me to print it letter size. The current .pdf's allow a full 8.5 x 11 print. Is there a way for someone to teach me how to adjust the dynamic template or is there a way a 2011.pdf could be made?

I am looking to have my calendar run June 2010 through June 2011....

Thanks,
Teresa

Use the ODS

and edit it yourself

Ygor - - To be honest - I

Ygor - - To be honest - I don't know how to do that. I opened the file in Open Office and changed the page format to letter and then I didn't know what to do when it was all goofed up layout wise.

I will try to mess around with it - - but any help in understanding how to go about it would be helpful.

I too find Open Office Templates confusing

For me at least, it would be much easier to study the pdf, and try to recreate it in Word or Excel, than to try to edit the file in Open Office, as it is some of the files don't look like the picture, the formatting is messed up on my computer, so that any saving without editing would likewise be messed up.

I wonder if there is some tutorial somewhere on how to do this type of thing easily. Personally I find it unintuitive, yet there must be a reason why so many use Open Office it to create templates, oh well.

It is a Spreadsheet - like Excel, but without Microsoft

That means it crashes less often :)

French Version?

Emmanuel,

Is it possible to get the French version? I have been looking for exactly what you have for a long time, but it is so hard to find a French version in the states. [admin edit: email address removed -- if you want to contact a forum member, you need to register. That way it minimizes spam]
Thanks!

Version française !

Un(e) francophone !
Le 2e semestre 2010, ainsi que l'année 2011 sont en ligne !
Bonne planification ;-)
Remarques, critiques et encouragements sont toujours les bienvenus !

I love this planner. Will

I love this planner. Will there be an English one for 2011?

Absolutely !

Just download the ODS file and update it yourself with OpenOffice.

I was afraid of that. I've never so much as opened the door to Open Office.

Any start up tips?

Thanks,

Let me clarify. I downloaded

Let me clarify. I downloaded the ODS, but my Macbook cannot open the zip file. Is it because of the extension? What should I do to open it?

Thanks

Do not unzip it

Use OpenOffice to open it.

2011 Planner Pad Calendar

I know we can all make a 2011 calendar ourselves, but has anyone done an English version of it who would share it? (The number of people who want it) times (the amount of time to do it) easily represents a huge waste of time. I tried using Open Office to create the calendar. If I understand the template correctly, it creates 2 out of 4 useable pages (one week) that must be saved as PDFs and collected into 52 files that have to be assembled into a year's calendar. It did not appear to create the entire year to me. If I am missing something in the process, would you let me know so I can make a 2011 planner pad calendar myself? Thanks.

If I understand ...

You want a PDF of the entire calendar year to download so that you do not have to tinker with it.

Is that correct ?
-----------------------------------
"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson) ***

Maybe...

If I am correct that it takes 52 files to create one year's calendar with the correct dates, then yes. It is already December, so if I can download the complete year and begin to use it for awhile that will be more time effective than tinkering with creating and assembling 52 files. If I do not understand how OpenOffice is working and it does create the entire year at one time, then I need to look at it again. Thanks.

No, one file...

13 iterations
The file creates 4 weeks in one shot

Open the file, go to cell A2 and change the date to 1/1/2011
There are your first 4 weeks.
Now, the last day of the last week is 23 January

Go back to cell A2 and change the date to 1/24/2011 (24 January)
There are your next 4 weeks

Repeat this about 11 more times or until you have as much as you want.

Will Not Work

There must be differences in OpenOffice and NeoOffice. I am running NeoOffice on a mac. All I can get to save are 4 pages - the 2011 2 pages per 1 week cover page, week 51 from Dec 26, 2010 to Jan 1, 2011 and a blank page. I have tried every option to get the pages in the table to save, but it will not save all the pages.

Well....

Then you should try OpenOffice
I will try the template on NeoOffice on one of my G4's to see what problems there might be.

What version are you using ? The latest appears to be 3.1.2 for NeoOffice

NeoOffice

3.1.2 Patch 2

Got IT!

I downloaded the mac version of OpenOffice and tried it. It worked! There must be a problem with NeoOffice handling the macro. Thanks for pushing me to find a solution.

Don't know

how i've missed this all along, but it's fantastic got my 2011 ready to go in this style!

2011 Planner Pad for Circa in English

Please convert to English. Love this with my circa binder and have used it successfully almost all of 2010. Really need the 2011 version fast. Thank you.

English version

Another plea for this to be converted to English. It is just what I am looking for to use with my new circa planner. Thanks in anticipation . . .

And another answer...

About 2011 planner pages and MS Office

I am using MS Office and I can not use Open Office, how can I download and print out this pages? Is there anyone this newbie (I'm )?

Open Office is free to download

Open Office is free to download and both OO and MSO can co-exist on the same 'puter, just a matter of deciding which you want to use as the default application. OO can edit and save files in MSO formats but MSO cannot do the same in OO formats. If you can use MSO than you can also use OO as they are similar. As to which is best it is fairly subjective but I lean to OO simply because it aligns with ISO standards whereas MSO is its own world.

So the plan would be to download OO and install it, download the planner pages you want and open the file using OO. From there you can use OO to edit dates etc or you can use OO to save the file in MSO format and then do your editing using MSO. The only thing to be aware of doing it this way is that because of OO following ISO standards, some functions may produce different results in MSO. It's only minor thing and you can work around it in most cases. Bob H.

...and if it is a question about installing it on your machine

you can always use a "Portable" instance of OpenOffice on a USB Thumb drive

Portable OO

Oooh portable Open Office! TY for the link ygor.
Now I can take it to work and play with it there too!
I don't suppose anyone has tried putting it on an SD card and running it on a Windows mobile gadget?

Grateful for help for the English Version

I've just seen Ygor's answer and done just that - downloaded Open Office and the template and then amended it. It's a great template and as I only have a couple of months in my planner at a time it's easy to just amend the date to suit.

Thanks all for a really good template and the advice on how to make it work. I'm off to see what other great forms I can find on this site now.

Agenda A5 GTD 2011 English !

100indecisions kindly whipped up an English 2011 version.

Great job and very useful.

Thanks!

Thanks 100!!! Great job!

Welcome!

Glad I could help!

Thank You!

Thank you! I was unable to do the steps to make this usable for me. Wanted you to know that your work and time to make this available is very much appreciated.
Happy 2011 to you! :)

This calendar is so helpful to me!

Thank you, Thank you!! I'm so HAPPY to have this downloadable in English, and for 2011! I got "hooked" on it last year and was so disappointed when in December it wasn't available in this format. I tried without it, not so good. Now I'll be so much more organized and feel more in control! :)
Again, thanks so much!

Thank you!

Don't know what I'd do without this.

2012 Version?

This is fabulous. Do you have a 2012 version?

You can DIY! ;)

Read the comments; the .ods is an english version you can open in OpenOffice and edit.
Change the first date to the current one, and print out as many weeks as you need. :)

printing more than 5 weeks?

in the ods format, i only get 4 weeks to print out. (page 1 and 10 aren't pages, leaving 2-9 = 4 weeks)

More Weeks?

Thank You Emmanuel for this great template.

It would be nice if it were more than just 4 weeks though.

Regardless, I think this is a great template to see what PlannerPad type of time management is about.

Thank you
