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.

 

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.

I’LL HAVE A MONTHLY WITH THAT

Once in a while, we receive an email asking about frequency mixes, such as do we offer monthly pages with our weeklies or can one get a daily with weekly pages. It seems that some customers don’t scroll down the configuration page, so they miss some options.

To make our options more visible, we’ve now added direct links within each category of the configuration page, so now all options will be even more clear.

config-box-D

So you can now scroll or link directly to your preferred type of configuration.

config-box-W

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

 

The most customizable and practical notebook on the planet!

Agendio now offers you the option to build your own fully customizable notebook: Select the types of pages you want to add, customize them, choose the number of pages of each, adjust their order and then add up to seven optional customizable tabs to separate the sections.

As with Agendio planners, you can also select your print colours, including different colours for each sub-section, your font, cover and accessories.

In addition, as a bonus to go with the introduction of notebooks, we’ve added the category “Meetings”, with customizable pages you can use to note meeting dates, participants, key issues, action items and assorted other details that you want to note and remember.

Please, sir, I want some more (with apologies to Oliver Twist)

Since we launched Personal-year planners, we’ve noticed that if you want a Monthly-Weekly with Extra pages or Planning pages, you’re limited to only two pages. The only configurations you can use are MMWWNN or MMNNWW (or if you are building a Personal-year planner, MMWWPP or MMPPWW). Each allows only 2 non-layout pages in the layout section, which may not be enough:

If you use the pages for meal plans or budgets or notes, then you don’t have any left for planning. And if you use them for planning, then you don’t have any left as standard Extra pages.

So today we added some more configurations:

new-configurations

Now you can choose a planner or insert configuration with 4 Extra / Planning pages after each monthly, or 4 after each weekly, or split, 2 after each monthly and 2 after each weekly.

Our team favourite is the third one, since you can add some pages that work better as weeklies, such as meal plans, weekly trackers and weekly reviews, and also others that work better as monthlies, such as budget pages and monthly reviews.

To check them out, go to either planners or inserts, choose Standard or Personal-year and the next screen will be the configuration screen, where you can select them.

 

Why Customizable Planners?

We rely on our planners to organize our days and our weeks, highlight our tasks, assemble our to-do lists, track our progress and record important details. The more organized our planners are, the more organized we are. But how can we be optimally organized if the tool we use to stay efficient does not suit our individual needs?

That, in one paragraph, is why customizable planners.

Most planners have similar layouts, so you must adapt to your planner. That’s backwards! And that’s why Agendio was created, to create an ever-growing selection of customizable planners.

This blog will focus on all things planner and customizable, as well as some general planner/planning topics. We will look at how we plan and manage our planners and whether there are any more rewarding approaches. I hope it will be informative, entertaining, maybe a little educational. If we are even a little successful, we may shine a light on some new ways of thinking about planners and the planning process.

And if you have questions you would like the blog to address or suggestions for topics, please don’t be shy and send them in.

Finally, to everyone who has purchased an agendio since our launch, a sincere thank you for your trust and your kind comments.
