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 place to 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.

 

Divisible and Conquer (1)

All Agendio planners include Divisibles, which is the name of the space for lists that you can also subdivide as you wish. We are often asked why?

The reason is simple: We all have tasks to do and things to remember that do not belong at a specific time or on a specific day. Todos that you will fit in when you have the chance, tasks you plan to juggle during the week or things to pick up or drop off when you happen to be in the area. Also, things you want to track, project  progress and your children’s activities or your school coourses. And how about one often-overlooked area: Me-Time, because it’s important to carve out time for yourself. One way to do this is to write down in your Divisible things you want to do for yourself so they are not far from the tasks you must do for your job.

Div-1

I don’t understand how some people use planner layouts that do not have enough space for general Todos. We are consistently told by our customers that they actually have more things in their divisibles than in their schedules, and when we ask whether this is new for them, the typical answer is that they always had all these responsibilities and needs, they just didn’t have a good place for them.

Div-4

If you have a busy schedule and you use a planner that consists mostly of schedule pages and limited room for general activities, I would love to hear how you manage and why you don’t miss having that general space to list all that other stuff that you still must get done.

Remember that some tasks are best placed in a divisible initially and then during the week moved to a specific time slot once you know how your week is playing out.

Div-3

Does the Week Start with Sunday or Monday?

At Agendio, we don’t know and we don’t care, which is why you can start your planner on whichever day you want, even Wednesday!

And now, you can also start your monthly and weekly planners on different days. Your weekly can start on Monday and your monthly on Sunday or whichever day you prefer. Simply select each of your start days on the first (info) screen of the builder.

Different Start Days

So does the week start on Sunday or Monday? Apparently it can now do both at the same time!

Activities: Weekly or monthly?

Some of you have mentioned that you don’t need to see your activities in your monthly pages and you would prefer to keep the space for other events.

So we’ve added a new option for our customizable Weekly-Monthly planners: Now, if you choose to, you can print your activities only on your weekly pages, not on your monthlies.

Activities not in monthly

You’ll find the checkbox just to the right of the activities save button.
