As the year comes to an end, you probably need to do some planning. How will you finish this year in the best way possible… and how will you make the next year your most productive year yet?
One of the things that I find very useful in my planning is BLANK PRINTED CALENDARS. I print out one page per month and use that for planning. It really helps that I can have multiple months spread out in front of me on the table.
In this post I will show you how you can print out blank monthly calendars from Outlook (and also how you can print out calendars for any particular date range).
How to Print a Blank Calendar from Outlook
Go to the Calendar in Outlook.
Go to the Home tab of the Ribbon (if you are not already there)
Click Open Calendar – Create New Blank Calendar.
Enter a name for the calendar.
Ensure that your existing Calendar is selected for “Select where to place the folder” and click OK.
On the navigation pane on the left, you should see that the calendar that you just created added to the list of Calendars.
Tick it so that it is displayed (you will also need to untick the name of your normal Calendar).
Click File –Print.
Under Settings, select Monthly Style (or choose an alternative style if your prefer)
By default the current month will be printed. If you want to print a longer date range (you may plan for the first quarter…or even the whole year), click Print Option and enter the date range in the space provided.
I hope that you find your printed blank calendars useful for your planning. It may be old school but it works.
