In the article “My Calendar Caffuffle“, I’d mentioned that I was working on a wall planner script for a Christmas release, but due to many factors I was unable to release this script and instead opted for a smaller script that – for many regulars to this site – didn’t really feel like much of a Christmas gift.
To this end, I felt like I let my supporters down and had to make sure that amends were made in the new year. On that note, I was able to work through the issues that held back the script, and I can now release the script free to the public:
This script will create a twelve month planner based on a start month and year, and to an output size in millimetres. There are one of four ways to display the planner based whether the months should appear in rows or columns, and whether the planner should be condensed or expanded. For example:
Before you say “I don’t like the colour” or “the type doesn’t fit”, note that the script creates the necessary styles so that the wall-planner can be tailored to your needs:
Don’t fancy starting the calendar in January? That’s no longer an issue either, the planner can start on any month:
UPDATED 2020-06-20 Need the planner in a language other than English? You can now choose from one of several other languages such as:
- dansk (Danish)
- deutsch (German)
- español (Spanish)
- ελληνικά (Greek)
- français (French)
- italiano (Italian)
- Nederlands (Dutch)
- norsk (Norweigan)
- polski (Polish)
- português (Portuguese)
- Русский (Russian)
- suomi (Finnish)
- svenska (Swedish)
UPDATED 2020-06-20 Need a user interface in your language? This version of the script features three additional language interfaces: German, French and Portuguese, with more languages planned to be added. If you would like your language added, please contact me via the contact page.
So that’s the free version of the script that can be downloaded from the scripts page now.
Want more? Well, I’m also working on a pro-version of the wall-planner script that will have additional features such as:
- highlight school days from known dates, a customised range, OR a text file;
- add events from a text file that contains the dates and events;
- (in expanded format) begin the planner on any day, not just Monday;
- highlight cells based on Find/Change or GREP searches;
- additional formatting options (appearance of months and days).
Lastly, speaking of pro-versions, I’ve also been busy improving my long-popular Data Merge to Single Record script that is now available for purchase from the scripts page. Don’t panic, the free version will remain, but to access features shown in the pro-version’s dialog box below is a paid release.
