CHANGE YOUR MODEL (Without Starting Over)

Everyone has been so happy with our new Change configuration option that we decided to double up the fun: You can now also change your model without starting over.

The button to change models is on the Builder Layout page, near the top left corner. We placed it on the layout page because, if you have a hybrid planner, such as a monthly-weekly, we need to know which one you want to change. So if you’re looking at your weekly layout and you click Change model, we’ll bring you to the weekly model page. If you’re looking at your monthly and click Change model, then you’ll be changing your monthly model.

change-model
When you land on the models page, you will see that we put your current model at the top of the list, in case you don’t remember which model you selected previously.

Once you select your new model, click customize just like you did originally, and we’ll bring you right back to the Builder.

You can change only one frequency at a time. Using the same example of a monthly-weekly planner, if you want to change both your monthly and your weekly, change one of them, come back to the Builder then change the other one.

Please note that if you change your model, we won’t transfer your customizations from your previous one, because the specifications for each model are often different, including number of labels, limits on numbers of characters in each label a well as the numbers of activities, events and holidays.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.

 

 

 

CHANGE YOUR CONFIGURATION (Without Starting Over)

One of the shortcomings of our system has been that if you want to change your configuration after having customized some or all of your planner, you must start over.

We’ve now eliminated that issue – We have now added an option in the Builder that allows you to update your configuration without losing your customizations. You can find it on the first (Info) page.

change-config

So now, if you’ve already spent two hours in the Builder and you decide that you want to add a monthly to your configuration, or you want to change those weekly Extra pages to Monthly, and you don’t want to lose your work, just go to the info page, click “Change”, update your configuration and then return to the Builder to continue personalizing your agendio.

 

NEW COVER DESIGNS!

We just added more than a dozen new covers designs, to go with our spiral-bound planners. There are a variety of florals, and we have added new categories such as “Art” and “Quotes”.

new-covers

Our new covers offer different options than our original ones: Traditionally, you could change the background color on most of our covers. On our new covers, you can’t change the background color, but you can change the color of the customization strip on the left. On some covers you can also change the color of the text.

You can see our new covers on the Features page, in the Design section.

 

CUSTOM CONFIGURATIONS!

We just added a big new feature this week that we’ve been working on for many months, custom configurations. You can now create your own combination of monthly, weekly, daily and Extra pages.

Although we offer two dozen preset configurations, there are many other possible combinations, so this feature allows you the freedom to assemble a configuration of your choice if it isn’t available in our preset list. As well, it allows us to add more configuration options either later this year and/or next year.

custom-config

As part of this update, we also added two new options. You can now:

  • Choose from a wider selection of durations, from 3 to 12 months.
  • Choose the thickness of your paper, either 24/60 lb./90gsm or 28/70 lb./105 gsm. Previously, if you purchased a daily, the paper was automatically selected to be our thinner paper, to fit in our binding. However if you choose a shorter-duration planner, you can now choose our thicker paper, even for your daily.

paper-and-months-selection

So now, with these new features, you can make a variety of highly-personalized planners, such as:

A 4-month student planner with labels for your courses for one term;
A short-term planner to get you to a key date, such as your birthday, to start your next planner and track your year.
A special 5-month project planner, with a large assortment of tracking Extra pages each week to help track all aspects of your project;

Using the custom configuration option is easy, but in case you’re not sure how to go about it, we’ve added a short video on the new configuration page, showing four examples of how to create a custom configuration.

show-me-how

Please be aware that the Personal-year planner option has been discontinued – It added complexity to the process of selecting a planner without adding enough benefits. Instead, we added all the features available previously in Personal-year planners, such as planning pages and the ability to start your planner on any day of the month, to our standard planners. So you get all the features, but with a more streamlined process.

As a result of this change, the red “N” icon for note pages and the yellow “P” icon for Planning pages have been combined into one icon, an orange “E” icon for Extra pages.

If you want to check out our custom configurations, just do as you’ve always done: Select either planners or inserts and the next page will be the configuration page.

And, more good news!: We will add new spiral-bound cover designs by mid-October! We know that many of you have been asking for new designs this year, so we‘ve been working on making that happen. We hope you’ll like them.

As always, let us know if you have any questions,

FUTURE MONTH PAGES

At this time of year, some customers ask us about 16-month academic planners. We don’t offer them, in part because we find them a bit wasteful: The pages for months 13 to 16 don’t usually get used since they get replaced by the next planner that starts next August or September. We also have a different way to keep track of future appointments.

We offer “Future month” Extra pages. You can add these anywhere in your agendio, although the best spot is right after your calendared pages. They serve the same purpose as the pages for months 13 to 16, but in a leaner way, leading to a slimmer and lighter planner.

future-month

You can use them to write down your appointments and todos for any month after the end of your agendio and then transfer the contents to your next planner when the current one ends. Each page is divided to offer a separate line for each day of the future month, so it’s easy to see if, for example, a future doctor’s appointment date conflicts with another activity.

You can see examples of our Future month page and other Extra pages in our Features section at https://agendio.com/features#extra

DIVISIBLE LISTS!

Up to now, you’ve been able to customize the line type and line spacing in your divisibles, as well as add checkboxes and shading. This has allowed you to customize in detail spaces to add your lists after you receive your agendio.

But what if you have an unchanging list of things you want to remember each week? For those of you who like that type of list, you can now add them to your divisibles.

Add your labels the same way you would do it in schedules if you change 12:00 to “Lunchtime” – You just click on “Labels” at the top of the divisibles customization panel and then write in each item one by one in the boxes.

labels-selection-zoom

You can still customize your divisible pagelets as you did before – This is a new feature on top of all the previous ones. So if you choose checkboxes and you add labels, you’ll get a checkbox on each line before your list item, so you can check it off when done.

And you can add multiple lists. For example, if you divide your divisible in four, you can add individual and separate lists to any or all of the four.

weekly-cropped

The lists will appear throughout your planner in their selected frequency. So if you add labels on the weekly layout of your monthly-weekly, they will appear each week in that divisible pagelet of your weekly layout for the duration of your agendio.

You will still also have the option of adding the pagelet label, the one you  add now at the top of each pagelet. For example, you can now make a divisible section called “Fitness” and fill each line with your exercises or diet todos.

daily-cropped

Note that if you change your line spacing to make it thinner, you’ll get more lines and more spaces for labels. If you make it thicker, you will have fewer lines and fewer spaces for labels.

Have fun playing with it and as always, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.

 

CUSTOMIZE AND COMPARE

We have updated the Builder so that you can now build multiple agendios at the same time side-by-side and compare!

Previously, if you did this, your browser may have mixed the content in different tabs. However, we have now upgraded our Builder to allow using multiple tabs on any up-to-date browser.

Start customizing your agendio in the Builder, then sign in (which you have to do  once you start moving around in the Builder), then open another tab and select and customize a second agendio. You can go back and forth between them and compare until you decide – The two will remain independent and the data should not become corrupted. Just remember that you need to sign in before you add your second tab.

multitabs

If you want to compare two versions of the same model, here’s a time-saving tip: Build and customize the first one then open a new tab but leave it empty. Go to your account, find the one you just customized and select Options/Copy. The system will copy your current one, with its customizations, into the Builder new tab. Now you can work on version 2 without having had to build it from scratch. Make sure you click copy, not Edit, because Copy will make a copy whereas with Edit you will work on the same planner in your tabs instead of working on different planners.

Once you decide on your preferred customization, close the other tabs, finish customizing on the remaining tab, add your agendio to your cart and you’re ready to purchase.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.

ADD MORE COLOR TO YOUR EXTRA PAGES

You can now choose individual colors for each of your Extra page sections.

ep-colors

Instead of choosing one colour for all your Extra page sections at the front of your planner and one for all sections at the back, you can now choose individual colours for each section.

THE AGENDIO MODELS LIBRARY

Has this ever happened to you? You customize your agendio and realize once you’re well-advanced that you want to change your configuration. Maybe you want to add monthly pages or maybe note pages after each week. And then you realize that you have to start over and re-customize the same layout. And it’s not that long to do, but it’s annoying, like getting to an intersection just as the light turns red.

Well, no need to do that anymore now that we have added the Agendio Models library! Most of you have used the Extra pages library, so you’ll be familiar with the idea: Like the Extra pages library, it’s a private library to which only you have access, where you can store your customized pages, so you don’t have to re-customize them completely from scratch.

 

Where do I see the models in my library?

When you are on the Models page, just after choosing your configuration, we now put models from your library at the top of the list, so you see them first. Select it the same way you select “regular” models now. When you get to the Builder, you’ll see that the layout contains all the labels and other customizations from before.

Please note that we will show you only those library models of the same size and frequency as the other ones on the models page. After all, there’s no point showing you Medium-size daily pages from your library (if you have any) if you’re busy choosing Large weekly pages.

You’ll also notice that to the right of the image of the model layout we add “FROM MODELS LIBRARY” and we include the planner name it resides in and the last date you customized it.

 

How do I add models to my library?

There are three ways to add them:

From the Builder: Let’s say you’re customizing a layout and decide to change your configuration and you want to add your work-in-progress version of that model to your library. There is now an “Add to Library” button at the top left of the Builder layout page to do that.

1-Add-to-library

Please note that adding is “frequency-dependent”, which is just a big word to say that if you click “Add”, it will add only the layout you’re working on. If you’re customizing a Monthly-Daily and working on your daily layout and you click “Add”, it will add the Daily. If you want to add the Monthly, you need to switch to your monthly layout and add it separately.

From the models page: Let’s say you’re on the Models page and you customized some layouts previously, but they’re not in your library and you want to add them. Look to the left and you’ll see a box titled “My models library”.

2-My-models-library

Click on “What’s IN my library?” and you’ll see a list of what’s in your library and what you can add. The second list includes checkboxes for you to select the ones you want to add and a button to add them.

3-whats-in

Please note that the list of what’s in your library is the full list, including all sizes and all frequencies, but the list of what you can add shows only models that fit the size and frequency of the Models page. This second list is filtered so you see only what you can import right now.

From your account: Scroll down to Products-Purchased or Products-Saved and then roll over “Options” and select “Add to Models Library”. Adding this way will add all layouts from that agendio to your library. So if it’s a monthly-weekly-daily insert, clicking “Add to Models Library” will add three layouts.

4-my-account

 

Can I add multiple versions of the same model to my library?

Yes you can. If you purchased model 32009 in each of the past three years, you can add all three variations of that model and they will each appear on their own slice on the models page.

Is there anything in my library now?

That depends on whether you have made a purchase. We have added to your library the customized layouts from planners you purchased before May 11, 2019. If that applies to you, then you should have at least one item in your library. Any purchases after that date, as well as all layouts that are customized but not purchased, we are leaving to you to decide if you want to add.

Can I delete from my library?

Yes you can, in two places: The first is on the models page, by clicking on the “X” to the right of the image.

The second is in the Builder: If you click “Add to library” from the Builder, the button then switches to “Remove from library”, so if you change your mind, you can simply click again and out it goes.

6-remove-a

 

How long can I keep items in my library?

For now, we plan to remove items in libraries after two years if they have not been modified in that time. Like some old clothes that will never be worn, it’s important to not clutter up cupboards or databases.

Is there anything else I should remember?

Yes, one last important detail: You must be signed in to see your library, so we know who you are and what to show you.

 

YOU CAN NOW CHANGE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS

As you know, there are no changes to an order once you have made your purchase. However, some customers have asked lately if that rule applies to shipping addresses, and if yes, can we change it.

We aim to please, so as of now, if you made a mistake in your shipping address, you can change it in your account.

Go to your account, scroll down to your purchases, find the one you wish to change, roll over “Options” on the right side and select “Order Details”. An input screen will pop up for you to re-enter the address.

shipping-address

Please note that you cannot change your address after your shipping label has been printed.
