A5 Year Planner (Vertical Format) for 2018

Another insert that we have never been asked for, a year planner but in vertical format rather than horizontal format.

Unlike our traditional 'horizontal' format it is spread over two pages but as two individual pages instead of a fold out format. 

So this insert is a year on two pages, it is formatted in vertical format for A5.

You can download 2018 versions here in Word and PDF formats. I haven't done one for 2017 as there is only 3 months of the year left.

If you want to customise this insert to your own requirements you need to download the source files here Word file and the Excel file, you will need both.

We have also done this one a single A4 page in the more conventional way that you can print out and then 'Z-fold' to fit an A5 organiser.

It looks like this:

You can download 2018 versions here in Word and PDF formats. Again I haven't done one for 2017 as there is only 3 months of the year left.

If you want to customise this insert to your own requirements you need to download the source files here Word file and the Excel file, you will need both.

When you've made all the changes you like to the template, you can perform a mail merge to create your own insert for any period you like. Check out our Free Diary Inserts link if you want more information on how to do this, including videos.

Once again a big thank you to Ray at 'My Life All In One Place' for his hard work and co-operation with helping to create and support us with all these inserts.

  1. Love it - this is great for planning before printing out the dailies.

  2. By popular request I'm developing the Personal size equivalent of this one.

  3. Is there any way the 2017 one can be done Steve for us waifs and strays that teach and follow an academic year format, ie 2017-2018. I work from September-August in my planner, so Sept 2017- August 2018. I know you can change the source file somehow you once said, to suit your own dates, but not sure how to do this here. I need a tecchie bod to say now you press button A. A whole year would be okay or pointers as to how to change the source file for your needs. THANK YOU. I love this insert. How clever of you and Ray.

    1. To do an academic year planner you have to take both years and copy and paste the months from one in to the other and remove the earlier months to get the 12 months you want. There's no easy way of doing it in the source files unless you rewrite them!

    2. Check your email account Jane

  4. Ah, I'm sorry Steve, I obviously have a lot to learn and don't know how the source files work in reality! I wish I were more tecchie, but I'm willing to learn and am a keen and eager beaver. I love to try new stuff out.Still find Excel baffling, as it never looks like the printed version on the screen I find.I'm bootling off to check my e. mail account straight away Steve. Thank you for helping out. You know, my brain feels fried trying to sort out my inserts this year and yet I know which ones I like and which work through years of trial and error. I've had quite severe hay fever the last few weeks and think the anti-histamines are getting to me a bit. Thank you again for all you do and your Philofaxy support........ scuttling off to look at inbox now!!

  5. thank you! going to attempt this tomorrow. I'll start with a 2019 to see if I can do the mail merge. If I can figure that out with the videos, I'm good!
