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.
The free Weekly Planner for Excel is a simple spreadsheet template by Vertex42.com designed to help you print weekly planner pages on 8 1/2 x 11 paper. If you prefer paper planners over electronic gadgets, this may be the perfect solution to help you organize your week in a simple and efficient manner. Put the planner pages inside a normal inexpensive 3-ring binder, or put a copy on your fridge for the whole family to use. If you are familiar with Microsoft Excel's print settings and page setup options, you'll find that you can scale the weekly planner to be printed on other size paper as well. The design includes most of the common sections that you will find in other planners, such as sections for recording notes, important dates, prioritized tasks, appointments and projects. Because the planner is just a simple spreadsheet, you can change labels, change the hours listed (in case you are working a night shift for example), or make formatting changes. One of the advanced features is the ability to list annual events like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. Up to 3 events per day will be listed automatically in the planner (see the Help in the Events worksheet). * What this spreadsheet will NOT do: If you enter tasks or appointments directly into the planner, they won't change when you change the week.
