Diary Inserts - What next?

Ray and I are making good progress with our programme of creating all the various 'standard' formats of diary inserts for most sizes of Filofax organisers. We still have a few more to release in the next few weeks. However, we are now looking to do some non-standard ones.

You will see I have created a poll to estimate the sort of demand for some of the ideas we came up with in a mini very informal brain storming session earlier this evening on Skype.

Are there any other ideas you would like to see for a dated insert?  Some silly suggestions could be a diary with a space to record which Filofax organiser you are currently using, or one with a 5 star rating included for the boy friend or girl friend of the moment....

We have included and 'Other' category in the poll, if you can put in the details of your suggestion in the comments to this post... or email philofaxy[at]gmail[dot]com with your suggestion including what size you would like it in. May be include a sketch of the rough layout of the page to give us a bit of a head start that will be great.

  1. Hullo! I would LOVE a time management style day on 2 pages for personal please, to print on A4 paper (not pre-cut personal paper as I have no way to put other paper in the library printers I use)
    Thanks!!

  2. Hi, I would like an insert for "Cellar Notes" both Personal and A5. This would include, Wine, Date of purchase, Vintage, Price, Merchant. Then two columns - Date Opened and Remarks. I think that would be neat and I would make good use of that.

    Thanks

    John

  4. I use a tv planner to plan my viewing and radio listening for the week. Means I don't waste idle time tv grazing and don't miss my favourite programmes either.Takes time to use at first, but is then is quicker,as many programmes are on at the same time and day each week.I buy a TV guide and enter the programmes from there.

  5. @TPS - that one is on its way.

    @Butanben - Steve showed my the page you sent him with your TV/Radio schedule. I like it.

  6. Ray/Steve - I have a number of inserts that I have created which I'll happily send across - you could probably make them look a lot prettier. do we currently have one for passwords/logins? That is the next thing I have to get a grip on.

    I've started to try and keep a (spasmodic!) diary for food / exercise so would be happy to collaborate on this.

  7. I really like the Project Plan included with the Filofax Time Management series of diary inserts. It would be great to have a customisable year-long planner similar to the one provided by Filofax but, in addition, I'd love a set of twelve monthly Project Plans.

    1. I have a copy of the project plans but I'm not sure how easy they will be to recreate/adapt. But I will look in to your idea of a 12 monthly one.

  8. All the undated Time Management pages are still currently available (in the UK at least) and marked as copyright Filofax. That includes Project Plan, Project Planner, Results Planner, Meeting Planner etc. It's one thing reproducing items that have long since been discontinued (such as Cellar Notes) or are long-term unobtainable (the TM 2012 WO2P diary inserts in particular). However, I personally don't think we should risk breach of copyright by copying/ replicating page designs that are both in the current Filofax range and listed as in stock.

    There has never been a monthly Time Management Project Plan, so that would be different!

    1. Yes as you will have seen all of the designs released so far are different to the Filofax ones. Hopefully better!

      I'm looking in to the Monthly Project plan request. I have a copy of the year one, I've never used it myself. But I'm sure a monthly one will be possible to create.

    2. @Tim: I agree. I'm all about filling gaps and creating what doesn't already exist.

  9. I completely missed this and the previous post, don't know how.

    I would have thought a family planner would be requested. I used the Filofax family pack last year and it was brilliant for me although on the website people complained about the boxes being too small. I had the A5 version and had no complaints. It worked a treat when I stuck with it. It did come with a whole lot of 'useless' inserts, well useless to me.

  10. I would like to have a blank A5 and personal day per page diary. No time slots, tasks or notes, just plain lined page (though I do love the icons on the 2DPP inserts!) with the month and date on the top.

  11. I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you have done in filling the huge gap for this kind of refill. I was really battling with the standard filo inserts.
