|How to personalize your calendar pages|
Click on "Get Calendar" above for a one month calendar suitable for printing.
On the Month screen click "Prev" & "Next" to see other months, or click "Options" to return to this Calendar Options screen.
From here you can jump to other years and months.
On this screen above choose a month, and year, select portrait or landcsape page orientation,
and check or uncheck the holidays, flowers, birthstones, & large numbers options.
Then click "Get Calendar".
Be sure the month screen is displaying with the events you want to see.
For best printing results (showing large day boxes),
you can go to your browser's "Page Setup" function and set each of the margins as small as possible
(top, bottom, left, right). Setting all four margins to ½" (0.5 inches) works well with most printers.
Next use your browser's "Print Preview" function to set the print page orientation
to match your selection for the calendar page orientation (portrait or landscape)
and adjust the print-scale if necessary (100% or "shrink to fit" should be fine). Then click "Print".
After printing, close the preview screen.
|Add a birthday or anniversary:|
Type the birthday in the event list box above.
Just follow the example in the event list box by entering the Month, Day, & Description for each event like this:
Apr 15 Leonardo da Vinci's Birthday
Do not enter the year, that way it will show on calendars of every year.
Type one event per row. You can have more than one row with the same day.
You could delete Leonardo da Vinci's Birthday and Queen Victoria's Birthday, and replace them with your relative's birthdays and anniversaries.
When you click on "Get Calendar" your events will show in the day boxes of the appropriate months, as much as there is room for.
May 24 Queen Victoria's Birthday
|Add an appointment:|
Type the appointment in the event list box above.
Enter the Year, Month, Day, & Description for each event.
You may include the time of the appointment in the description eg:
2010 Feb 23 3:30 PM Pick up new car
When you select the February 2010 calendar page, "3:30 PM Pick up new car" will show in the day box of February 23rd.
|Events lasting a few days:|
Just like an Appointment but with both the start and end day numbers separated by a dash like this:
2010 Mar 5-7 Trade Show
When you select the March 2010 calendar page, "Trade Show" will show in the three day boxes of March 5th, 6th, and 7th.
|Add a yearly event by Weekday:|
Type the event in the event list box above.
Enter the week-number, day of the week, Month, & Description for each event.
For example, if your annual reunion is always the first Saturday in June you type this:
1st Sat Jun Reunion
Here are some other examples.
2010 1st Wed Jun Frisbee
Note that if you type in a year, it will only show that year. If you do not type a year, it will show again every year.
However when using the fifth week, April has a fifth Monday in 2007, 2012 & 2013, but it does not show in the years between,
because those years only have four Mondays in April.
Also when using the Last Wednesday of May, this will show every year,
and will be on the fourth or fifth Wednesday of May in different years, depending on the number of Wednesdays in May of each year.
2nd Thu Oct Party
3rd Fri Nov Shop
4th Sun Jan Library
5th Mon Apr Move
Last Wed May Cruise
|Add a monthly reminder:|
Enter the week-number, day of the week, & Description for each reminder. Do not type a year or month. For example:
2nd Tue Change Furnace Filter
"Change Furnace Filter" will show on the second Tuesday of every month.
|Add weekly routine items:|
Enter the day of the week, & Description for each routine item. For example:
Mon Sales calls
Thu Marketing mtg.
|Add biweekly items:|
"Alt" is for Alternate weeks, and "Oth" is for every Other week, like even and odd weeks.
Try "Alt", and if it is the wrong weeks, try "Oth" instead. For example:
Alt Fri Payday
Alt Sat Movie
Oth Sat Pizza
|Hilite days with background colors:|
Type any of these background color names after the description of an event in the event-list-box.
Or just type the color with no description.
Here are some examples:
Feb 14 pink
The last color listed for a day is the color that shows.
So here in the example, all the days of March will show yellow except March 17 will show green.
Mar 17 green
2010 Aug 7-15 vacation aqua
As they say, "For every rule there is an exception." That seems to go double for scheduling.
So for any repeating event, you can enter exception dates in the event-list-box. There are three types of exceptions:
they are "except", "next day", and "prev day".
First enter the event, and then on the next row or rows enter the exceptions.
For all types of exceptions, the date you enter is the date that does not get the event.
Suppose you get paid every other Friday, except that it is on the previous day if the Friday is
New Years Day, Independence Day, Vetrans Day, or Christmas.
You could enter it this way, to work for any year:
Oth Fri Payday (See the "Add biweekly items" section above for alternate Fridays.)
And you can put other events in the list, only keep exceptions together with their event.
Here is an example with the other two types of exceptions.
There is a hike on the second Saturday of every month except February, & May, also in June it is delayed one day.
And note that after the exceptions, February is rescheduled for a week later.
Also the highlight color (green here) follows the exceptions:
Jan 1 prev day
Jul 4 prev day
Nov 11 prev day
Dec 25 prev day
2nd Sat go hiking green
Another way to use exceptions, here a 2 week vacation is shown without the weekend counting.
Work days are highlighted yellow, and the entire vacation time including the weekends is highlighted aqua:
Jun next day
3rd Sat Feb go hiking green
2010 Jun 7-18 Vacation
2010 Jun yellow
2010 Jun 5-20 aqua
You can copy and paste your list of events from the events-list-box on this screen into a notepad text document and save them on your PC.
