Monthly/Weekly Calendar Improved [en]

[fr] Une amélioration du planning que je me suis fabriqué. Les semaines sont verticales (plus logique vu que le temps file verticalement durant un jour). Il y a une version française en PDF.

Screenshot of calendar days. I barely started using [the calendar I created for myself]( that I’ve already made some major interface changes: most significant being that I’ve shifted the weeks from horizontal to vertical view. You still get four months on a single sheet of paper, but you have to hold it the other way.

The reason for this is that time inside a day flows vertically (morning things at the top of the day box, evening things at the bottom). It makes more sense for me to have the next morning straight below the current day’s evening. This means I lose an “at a glance” view of “all my mornings this week” or “all my evenings this week” — but I’m glad to sacrifice that for some temporal continuity, and an easier view of “my next Tuesday afternoons”.

I’ve also revised the six little lines used to fill up the days: two large ones for a.m. and p.m. (marked as such), one fine one for lunch and supper, and another not-so-thick one for evening. On my version of the calendar, I’ve also pre-filled regular weekly commitments (judo, singing, etc). The screenshot shows you what it looks like.

Here is [the new version of this calendar](/files/monthly-weekly-vertical-en.pdf) ([version française](/files/monthly-weekly-vertical-fr.pdf)). If you want to edit stuff, get the [Open Office 2 version](/files/monthly-weekly-planner-vertical.ods).
