ADD LONGER LABELS TO YOUR AGENDIO COVER!

This year we’ve received many requests to allow more characters on our covers, to be able to write longer labels. So a few weeks ago we more than doubled the maximum length. How much of a difference does it make? A big difference.

Before you could write “To be or not to be”. Now you can write “To be, or not to be, that is the question.” Sounds much better, doesn’t it?

What will you come up with for your next agendio cover?

DOUBLE WEEKLIES

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.

double-weeklies-A

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.

double-weeklies-C

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.

double-weeklies-B

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.

 

 

SIGNATURE ON DELIVERY

We have been hearing of more issues with porch pirates as well as USPS delivery issues. So we have added a new option for our deliveries to the US and Canada.

signature-on-delivery

When you are on the checkout page, you now have the option to check a small box under the shipping details, and your package will require signature for delivery. This should ensure that your agendio is not stolen or mis-delivered.

NEW GIFT CARDS

We recently redesigned all our gift e-cards. They’re now much more colorful and fun. We’ve also added one new one, for students.

You can see them on our gift e-card page, at

THICKER PAPER

We now offer a thicker version of our highest quality, optimally smooth white paper.

Please note that it’s available only with a custom configuration. To use it in your next agendio, go to the Custom configuration screen, which is now the default configuration screen, and select the 120 gsm paper option.

32lb-paper

You can find out more details about our paper in our Features section, at https://agendio.com/features/#paper

 

INSERTS + TABS

You can now add tabs when you purchase most sizes of Agendio inserts. They are available for all page sizes 7” or bigger, which includes Filofax A5 and Franklin Classic.

tabs-in-inserts

You get the same tabs as we offer on our planners, with a few spare ones for adding custom tabs, and with the option of an additional tab strip if you have a large number of Extra page sections.

 

END-OF-MONTHLY-SEQUENCE EXTRA PAGES

We now offer “End of monthly sequence” Extra pages.

If you select this option, we will place your end-of-monthly-sequence Extra pages (or EOM pages) after all the other pages for each month.

For example, if you select a “MMWW” (or monthly-weekly), and you add EOM pages, we will place your pages as follows: The first monthly, followed by all of that month’s weeklies, then your EOM Extra pages, then your next monthly, your next bunch of weeklies, your next EOM pages, and so on…

It will look like this:

1. mmww_tt-mini-gs

And the configuration will look like this:

2. mmww_tt

 

Notice that the end-of-sequence icons show a small right-facing arrow below the E, to show that they are not standard Extra pages.

 

You don’t have to include monthly pages in your configuration to use EOM Extra pages.

For instance, you might have a Weekly-only configuration, WW, but you would now like four pages at the end of each monthly sequence. Perhaps you’d like some note or summary pages but you don’t need them every week. You would create this sequence on the custom configuration page by choosing WW for your weeklies, then one set of EOM Extra pages, then another. Your final configuration would look like this:

3. ww_tttt

And would create the following sequence of pages:

4. ww_tttt-mini-gs

 

You can also mix standard and EOM pages in one configuration. You could select monthly pages, followed by standard Extra pages, then weeklies and then EOM pages. The resulting configuration would be:

5. mmnnww_tt

and would create the following sequence of pages:

6. mmnnww_tt-mini-gs

 

Please note that you can select EOM pages only on the Custom configuration selection page.

 

If you add EOM pages, and you’re not sure if your configuration was created correctly, you can look at the preview on the Builder review page. That’s actually something you should always do before ordering, to catch any errors in customizations you may not have noticed.

NEW FEATURES COMING IN NOVEMBER

We’re close to releasing some new features we’ve been working on this year. Since many of you are now customizing your planners for next year, we decided to tell you now, in case you were interested in these features. They should start being rolled out in a week or two:

more-features

End-of month Extra pages are Extra pages that are placed at the end of each monthly page sequence, whether or not you include monthly pages in your agendio

Spiral upsizing is the option to get your spiral-bound agendio with a spiral one size bigger than usual.

Like most everyone else, our 2020 has not proceeded as we originally planned. Covid-related physical distancing and other restrictions we faced while manufacturing your agendios has reduced our productivity, and we haven’t been able to release as many new features as we had planned at the beginning of the year. The delayed features, including larger fonts for activities and events, should be added by summer 2021.
