HIGHLIGHTED EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

You can now add highlights to your events and activities!

You can highlight birthdays, paydays, garbage day, practice, or any other event or activity you don’t want to miss.

Do you forget to pay credit card or utility bills? Did you forget your last anniversary? Highlights might help.

text-highlighting

We have created four highlight colours (yellow, blue, green and pink) so you can find one you like best, or assign different highlight colours to different labels.

highlight-web

To try out the highlights feature, start another agendio or edit an existing one, and go to the events or activities screens, and you’ll see the option in the first column.

2023 AGENDIOS!

It’s the time of year when agendios are being customized for 2023, so we have now added all months and all days in 2023 as possible start dates.

2023-December-agendios

You can now make your 2023 agendio, starting on any day on 2023, or if you prefer, split your agendio into multiple thinner and lighter agendios, also starting on whatever days you choose.

UNDATED AGENDIOS

We’re pleased to announce that undated agendios are now available!

You can now choose any agendio model and order it as an undated planner. It can be a monthly, weekly or daily, as you wish. The pages will remain mostly the same, especially your schedule, list pagelets and divisible. The difference will be that the date pagelet will be empty, leaving room for you to add the date when you choose to.

Please note that your events, activities and holidays will not be printed in your agendio, since there won’t be any dates to connect them to. Tabs will also not be available, since there won’t be any months to show us where to place them.

undated-agendios

If you want your agendio to be undated, follow the same steps you have always followed, but when you get to the Builder, look on the left side of the Info page and you will see a dropdown that allows you to select Undated.

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.

 

 

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.

 

JANUARY 2022 START

Do you like to customize and purchase your agendios well in advance of the start date? If so, this is for you: We have added January 2022 as a start date.

january-2022

In July we plan to add the other months of 2022 (and we’ll remove January to June 2021).

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PAGE NUMBERS NOW AVAILABLE

You can now add page numbers to your agendio, at the bottom of each page, centered.

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.

 

3-COLUMN LAYOUTS ARE LIVE!

They have only 3 columns to a page, so there’s more room to write on each line. If you’re looking for the widest weekly columns possible, you should check them out.

3-column-layout wide

You can see them on the weekly model pages. They will be at or near the top of your list, just below any models that are in your library (which are always first).

We’ve added a new side-by-side label pagelet option on a few of the new models, where you can choose between fewer wider pagelets or more narrower ones. It’s a bit like a horizontal divisible. Let us know if you like the idea!

And as always, let us know if you have any questions.
