CUSTOMIZE AND COMPARE

We have updated the Builder so that you can now build multiple agendios at the same time side-by-side and compare!

Previously, if you did this, your browser may have mixed the content in different tabs. However, we have now upgraded our Builder to allow using multiple tabs on any up-to-date browser.

Start customizing your agendio in the Builder, then sign in (which you have to do  once you start moving around in the Builder), then open another tab and select and customize a second agendio. You can go back and forth between them and compare until you decide – The two will remain independent and the data should not become corrupted. Just remember that you need to sign in before you add your second tab.

multitabs

If you want to compare two versions of the same model, here’s a time-saving tip: Build and customize the first one then open a new tab but leave it empty. Go to your account, find the one you just customized and select Options/Copy. The system will copy your current one, with its customizations, into the Builder new tab. Now you can work on version 2 without having had to build it from scratch. Make sure you click copy, not Edit, because Copy will make a copy whereas with Edit you will work on the same planner in your tabs instead of working on different planners.

Once you decide on your preferred customization, close the other tabs, finish customizing on the remaining tab, add your agendio to your cart and you’re ready to purchase.

As always, 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.

Flex tables now show column widths

Our Flex tables have been quite popular, so we’ve been looking for a feature or two we could add to make them even better.

 

column-widths

So we’ve added width rulers to our Flex tables. Now, when building your tables, you can see how wide each column will be. It will also help those of you looking to make multiple columns of identical width.

To check them out, start a planner in the Builder, go to Extra Pages and select Flex Tables.

Half as thick but just as practical: 6‑Month agendios

During the past year we’ve received requests for thinner planners, and we’re happy to announce that we now offer 6‑Month agendios.

The agendios we offer in this new format are our thickest planners, including all our dailies as well as most of our weeklies. The thinnest weeklies, such as WW, and all our monthlies are available only in the 12‑month format, because they don’t include as many pages, so a 6‑month format would be much too thin.

 

You can see which configurations are available in the 6‑month format on the configuration page.

6m-configuration

 

You can then select a 6‑month version of your planner on the models page, where we also indicate to you which kinds of covers (wrap, spiral or both) are available.

6m-models

 

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