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.

 

MORE ACTIVITY, EVENT AND HOLIDAY CUSTOMIZATION!

One of the great Agendio features is the ability to add your personal activities and events to your planner according to your schedule. But you have limited control if you want to show them on one page frequency, such as daily, but not on another, such as monthly. We have been asked if we can do something about this.

We aim to please, so we have now added the option to choose whether your activities, events and holidays will be printed on your monthly, weekly or daily pages. Not only that, we added the option to make that choice for each activity and each event.

We now provide you with checkboxes on each line where you enter your activities and events and you can fill them for each frequency according to your preferences. You can decide that “Clean bathrooms” goes on your daily pages every Saturday while “Backup computer” goes on your monthlies every 15th of the month while “Yoga” goes on both every Tuesday. Or you can show your anniversary date on  your monthly, weekly and daily pages but birthdays only on weeklies.

AEHLibrary-events

With all this increased customization, we realized that you would benefit from some additional tools to keep track of what you customized: So we added a sorting feature that allows you to sort by frequency, or to keep similar items together in a manual sort by moving your entries manually up and down with the two headed arrows on the left of each screen.

AEHLibrary-activities

We  also upgraded our Holidays customization. Holidays work a little differently: You can assign the pages on which they appear, but only for the entire list. We feel this makes sense, because we can’t see a scenario where you would want some holidays on monthly pages and others on weekly pages. So for this option, the checkbox is at the top of your selected list on the right side.

AEHLibrary-holidays

Please note that in order to implement this update, we had to create new master files for each of your activities, events and holidays. So if you’ve created many different lists over the years, you may find that you want to delete some entries before your next purchase.

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

 

OUR REVIEW & SURVEY CONTEST

WE HAVE A WINNER!

It’s Laura from Ontario. The full cost of her planner has been added back to her account.

THANK YOU to everybody who filled in our review and/or survey. We have read every comment and made notes of what you have shared with us, and over this year we anticipate adding many new features related directly to your comments.

We’ve also decided to try something new: Your answers were so helpful that we’d like to do this again. However, like us, you don’t want to keep filling in surveys, so we came up with the following idea: Once in a while, we’ll send out a 1-question survey (that’s correct, just one) about one of our features, and each time we do that, we’ll give out a prize, such a gift certificate. The way we see it, one question takes nearly no time to answer but gives you a way to share your preferences, and that helps us make better products. In the next few weeks, we’ll try our first one.

MONTHLY–WEEKLY–DAILIES

In the beginning, we created the customizable weekly and monthly planners. We saw that they were good, so we created the customizable monthly-weekly.

mwd-1

And the customers enjoyed them so much, they asked why not a daily? So we created the customizable daily, from which came monthly-dailies and weekly-dailies.

mwd-2

And the customers rejoiced at these new offerings, so we created Extra pages, which begat WWNN and MMNNWW and all sorts of other configurations, which were then followed by Planning pages.

mwd-3

And the customers were very happy with all the choices they were now offered, but some customers felt something was missing. They pointed out that we offered monthlies, weeklies, dailies and every combination of two frequencies that were possible, but what about the last piece of the puzzle?

We eventually got the hint and now we are happy to announce that agendio has added monthly-weekly-daily planners!

We currently offer two varieties, a monthly spread-weekly spread-daily on six pages (MMWWDDDDDX), and a monthly spread-single weekly page-daily on seven pages (MMWDDDDDDD).

m2w2d6

m2w1d7

You can see both of them on the configuration page in the Dailies section.

 

Reprint Your Agendio

We’ve started to receive mail from customers, asking how to reprint last year’s planner. It occurs to us that many of you may be wondering the same thing, so we thought we’d let everyone know. It’s actually very simple:

1. Go to your account, scroll down to the “Products” section and look for the agendio you wish to reprint;

2. Roll over “Options” and click on “Reprint planner”. This will bring you to the Builder and load your agendio automatically;

reprint

3. Review each section of the Builder to be sure that every part of your agendio is customized as you want it. In particular, check that your activities and events are still correct and that the dates are still valid.

4. Once you’re sure that all is good, add to cart and checkout.

Please remember that we are entering the peak time of the year for planners, so there is more risk of delays in manufacture or delivery. Consider reordering now, to be sure you have yours in hand when you want it.

Parlez-vous agendio?

You can now customize your Agendio planner in different languages.

You have always been able to customize your labels in any language, but now you can also select to show your months and days in Spanish or French. All it takes is one change on the first (info) screen of the Builder.

languages-info

You can also show selected holidays in other languages. It’s not feasible right now to translate our full list of thousands of holidays into different languages, so we’ve come up with a novel approach.

For each language, we have identified language/holiday pairs that are selected most often and we have translated the most used and relevant holidays associated with each language.

For Spanish, we have translated all US, Mexican and Spanish holidays. For French, we have translated Canadian and French holidays.

languages-holidays

You can find out more on our Features page, where we also explain what to do if you want us to add another language.

THE AGENDIO EXTRA PAGES LIBRARY

The Agendio Builder allows you to add Extra pages to your planner or inserts. Many of you have used this feature, and some of you have then discovered that if you change models, you have to re-select and re-customize your Extra pages for your new model.

We thought about this situation during the summer and decided that it could be improved upon, and we came up with the Agendio library.

At our new Extra pages library, which you can find in the Builder on the Extra pages screen, there are many things you can do:

ep-library

Import to your library
Store your customized Extra pages in your library and use them later in a different model or configuration.

Import to your current planner
While customizing a planner, bypass the library and add the Extra pages that you made for a previous planner directly to your new planner.

Adjust your library settings for saving pages
We offer three settings for adding pages to your library. The first is the default:

  • Ask every time you add an Extra page to your planner whether to save it to the library,
  • Don’t ask and save them automatically, or
  • Don’t ask and don’t save.

Please note that the library will only save or import pages of the same size as the planner you are working on. So, for example, if you are customizing a medium planner, you cannot import large pages, nor will it show you Journal-size pages you may have added to your library previously.

You can find out more about the library on our Features page.

 

Six of this, a dozen of that

The new 6-month duration option is a success. However, if you start a 12-month or 6-month and decide to switch to the other, you have to re-customize, which can be annoying.

So we’ve added another setting on the first screen of the Builder, which allows you to switch between a 6-month and a 12-month, without restarting.

6m-switch

If you use this option, please be aware that changing the duration of your planner will result in a change in price. It may also require changes to your Extra pages and customizable tabs, because a 12-month planner may not have space for as many Extra pages as a 6-month, while a 6-month planner allows only one customizable tab, not two.

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