Simple schedules

Create attractive weekly calendars with this Excel spreadsheet.

Despite the ubiquity of electronic calendars, sometimes a paper version just can't be beat. Weekly Planner for Excel is an Excel spreadsheet that lets users create and print attractive weekly schedules. It's nothing fancy, but it's a surprisingly nice way to create hard copies of your weekly goings-on.

The schedule displays a small three-month calendar across the top, with the selected week highlighted. To create a current weekly schedule, simply enter the desired date in the text box at the top of the interface; the weekly schedule beneath will update with the appropriate dates and days of the week. Monday through Friday allow for hourly planning, with lines labeled 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday have less space. There are also areas for notes, a task list, and a list of people to call on the left. All of this fits quite nicely on one page, making Weekly Planner for Excel an easy way to create your own planner in a folder or binder. Or you could print out your family's weekly schedule and give a copy to each family member, or even use it to keep track of schedules in a small business. Weekly Planner for Excel also comes with a list of holidays and a set of mini-calendars, and brief instructions explain the details of how the spreadsheet works.

Overall, we think that this is a simple but useful way to create printable weekly schedules. We recommend it to all users.
