Over the years we’ve been asked about double weekly planners – Planners that include two dated spreads for each week. We don’t offer them, but we’d like to share with you examples of double weeklies that customers have been making on their own. Agendios are so customizable that you can not only personalize the content of pages, but also create fundamentally different planners, and what wonderfully creative planners we are seeing.
Why would you want a double weekly? The big benefit is that you create much more space per day than a weekly, without switching to a daily format. Some customers are currently creating one spread for work and the other for home, or one as a regular dated weekly spread and the second as a place to add more detail to each day.
For example, here is a row weekly layout with a secondary weekly created out of divisible pages to add a schedule for each day. The primary row weekly planner pages can’t be used easily for scheduling an entire day, but the secondary pages can.
If you want to make a double weekly, select a configuration that includes at least one spread after each week. We show this as WWEE, the W’s being weekly pages and Es being Extra pages. Then in the Builder, on the Extra pages screen, near the top/right, you highlight your extra pages and customize them to include features that usually come with dated pages. The best pages to use as a base for this are divisibles, either one or two column, or Flex pages.
Here’s an example that includes four Extra pages (we’re showing only two). The primary weekly is made up mostly of a schedule for each day and the Secondary pages add space for todo lists and notes.
And here’s one that adds pages to track billable time by day. Similar to the first example, the primary is a row planner, and the secondary pages are used for schedule-related tracking.
If you’re thinking of making a double weekly, just remember that you need to start with the correct configuration, which includes a weekly followed by two Extra pages. If you forget, or if you want to convert an existing weekly into a double weekly, it’s easy to do: Go to the Builder Info page and at the top you will see a button to change your configuration.
