Design your own Calendar Layout – Event Calendar Maker

Posted on

In this article, we will learn how we can create our own calendar layout design. The Event calendar Maker Excel template comes with 7 different layouts (Yearly, Yearly with Events, Monthly, Monthly with Events, One Month, Weekly and Daily). However, if we need to have any other layout, we can do that easily using Excel’s ‘Paste as Linked Picture‘ feature (also called as ‘Camera tool’).

For example, we have the Yearly design which displays four months in a row with 3 rows in total. Our Yearly w Events design displays two months in a row with 6 rows in total. Let’s say we want to have 3 months in a row and we want to be able to add other elements as well. It’s easy and can be done in just a few minutes.  In this exercise, we will create a new layout where three months are shown in one row. Once you understand the fundamentals of the approach, you can create any other layout you would prefer. Let’s get started.

 

VIDEO DEMO

If you prefer videos, you can watch this exercise demo in this video.

 

CREATING THE BASIC LAYOUT

Let us create a new sheet first where we will design the layout.

Create New Sheet
Create New Sheet

 

  1. Go to the Yearly sheet and select the first month’s cells.
Select a Month's Cells - Yearly Calendar Design
Select a Month’s Cells – Yearly Calendar Design

 

Remember to select 6 weeks even if the month you select doesn’t have 6 weeks. This will ensure that our approach will work even if the month is changed in the future.

2. Copy cells by pressing Ctrl+C (Ctrl key and C key together).

3. Go to the new sheet we created. Click on Paste in the top left menu (in the Home ribbon) and then choose ‘Linked Picture‘ in the options available.

Paste as Linked Picture
Paste as Linked Picture

 

We have now created a linked image which will display whatever will be in the Yearly design’s first month’s cells.  This is a picture now and hence if you click on it, you will realize that you can move it around like a picture object.

Pasted Month as Image
Pasted Month as Image

 

This in turn means that you will now have options to format it as a picture. Look at the top right in the menu bar and you will see a new ribbon ‘Picture Tools‘. This will appear only when you select a picture object.

Picture Tools Ribbon
Picture Tools Ribbon

 

For example, we can apply border to the image by selecting the color, border weight and line type (dashes).

Choose Picture Border as needed
Choose Picture Border as needed

 

We can repeat the above steps with second and third month. At the end, we will have an image like this one below.

3 Months in the new Layout

ALIGN AND DISTRIBUTE

If we are not very careful in lining up the three images in one line, it might appear like above. Not to worry. Excel has all the tools needed. If you would prefer the three months to appear aligned in one row, then we can use Excel’s picture tools to align. Select all three images. To select all three,

  1. Click on the first month image.
  2. Press the Ctrl key and click on the second month image while pressing the Ctrl key.
  3. Click on the third while still pressing the Ctrl key.

Then, click Align in the Picture Tools ribbon’s Format section. Select ‘Align Top‘.

Align Top option in Picture Tools
Align Top option in Picture Tools

 

You would also have noticed that the three months are not spaced equally horizontally (horizontal gaps between them are not equal). Excel to the rescue again. With all the three images selected, go back to the Align menu and choose ‘Distribute Horizontally‘ this time.

Distribute Horizontally in Align Menu
Distribute Horizontally in Align Menu

 

Now, the calendar will look aligned and evenly distributed.

Three Months Aligned Calendar Layout

This is how easily we can design our own calendar layout using Excel’s ‘Paste as Linked Picture’ option. This new calendar will update as you enter new events or change event types (colors). If you change the beginning month in the Home sheet’s settings, that will also get reflected in this new layout. Everything in this new layout will work exactly as it does with the default calendar design layouts in the template.

Usually the pasted image appears slightly less clear compared to the original cells. This is how Excel does and is usually not an issue. However, depending on your need, please test the clarity of the output in print or PDF.

 

ADD LEGEND AND MORE

It is important to note that you can apply this method to any type of cell. For example, I recommend adding the legend to your new calendar layout so that it is clear what the different colors mean. We can copy the legend from the Yearly design and ‘paste as linked picture’. Similarly, we can add event details as needed.

We can also insert other images from our computer such as our logo. For this, we would go to the Insert ribbon and choose ‘Pictures‘.

Insert Logo or other pictures to Calendar
Insert Logo or other pictures to Calendar

 

A sample of such a calendar layout will look like the one below.

Add Legend, Logo and Event Details to Calendar Layout

A couple of useful tools while inserting your own pictures will be Cropping (if your image has other elements you don’t need) and re-sizing (ex. reducing the size of the logo)

Tips

We used the Yearly design as the source for our demo. Please note that you can copy calendar months from any of the existing calendar designs.

You can copy as many months as needed.

You can also apply colors/borders on the cells (in addition to the images) in the new calendar layout

You can add text or text boxes as needed.

 

PRINTING

If we would like to export to PDF or to print this new design, we need to set it up for printing.

Select cells that cover the printable area. We shouldn’t select the images directly. Whatever area of cells we select, any image that floats over that area will get printed.

Click on Page Layout ribbon and select Print Area –> Set Print Area.

Set Print Area for Calendar
Set Print Area for Calendar

 

Then, we can print or export as usual from the File menu. We would choose the appropriate print settings based on the layout we design (for example: landscape or portrait).

How to filter events to display on calendars?

Posted on
Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Filter Events

In this article, I will explain how we can filter events in calendars using our Event Calendar Maker Excel Template. The template allows creating customized event calendars easily with 7 different designs automatically created based on your input event data.

Sometimes, when you print or export those calendars, you may want to display only certain event types or remove certain event types. For example, you are storing events assigned to different projects and you want to display only events of one project at a time. I explain below how we can easily do that.

 

VIDEO DEMO

STEPS

First, let’s enter some information in the SETTINGS sheet. Let’s leave the default basic settings as it is, to create a 2016 calendar.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Basic Settings
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Basic Settings

 

Then, we enter four event types and assign different colors.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Event Types
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Event Types

 

In the EVENTS sheet, we enter four events, one for each event type. They all are weekly events happening for the entire year, on Mon, Tue, Wed and Thu respectively.  We are choosing this so that showing them on the calendar designs will be easier. The concept we are going to learn is applicable for any type of one-time or recurring events.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Events
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Events

 

The ‘Yearly’ calendar design should look like this now.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Yearly Calendar
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Yearly Calendar

 

This is great. We can print or export to PDF and share. Sometimes, we may not want the calendar to have all the event types. We may want to print each event type (‘Meetings’ vs ‘Holidays’) separately. We can do so very easily. We are going to use the ‘ACTIVE?’ column available in the ‘Events’ table. This column is designed for you to enter No for any single event that you do not want to display on the calendar. But in this case, we want to be able to filter on a group of events and instead of going to each row and enter No, we will see how we can write formulas to do this more efficiently.

Each row in the Events table is considered as an ‘Event’. Events are grouped into ‘Event Types’. An ‘Event’ can be recurring and each such occurrence is called ‘instance’.

First, let’s change the values allowed in this column. Choose DATA ribbon –> ‘Data Validation’ –> ‘Data Validation’, as shown below.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Data Validation
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Data Validation

 

Then, in the following window, please add Yes to the list of allowed values and check the box at the bottom.  Click OK.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Change Data Validation
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Change Data Validation

 

Now, we are ready to start filtering. We will cover 4 different scenarios. Depending on which scenario is applicable to you, please choose the corresponding formula.

1. Display only events of one specific ‘Event Type’

Let’s write a simple formula.

=IF([@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Meetings”,”Yes”,”No”).

This formula will enter Yes in the ‘ACTIVE?’ column whenever the ‘Event Type’ is Meetings. Otherwise, it will be set to No.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Keep only one event type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Keep only one event type

 

Let’s see how the Calendar looks now. Only events of ‘Event Type’ Meetings will appear.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Calendar - Keep Only One Event Type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Calendar – Keep Only One Event Type

 

A mouse can also be used while writing the formula. Please see the video demo above.

2. Filter (and not display) events of one specific ‘Event Type’

The formula will be

=IF([@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Meetings”,”No”,”Yes”).

This formula will enter No in the ‘ACTIVE?’ column whenever the ‘Event Type’ is Meetings. Otherwise, it will be set to Yes.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Filter One Event Type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Filter One Event Type

 

The Calendar will appear as below. All the three event types other than the Meetings event type will appear on the calendar.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Filter One Event Type - Calendar
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Filter One Event Type – Calendar

 

3. Display only events of more than one specific ‘Event Type’

The formula will be

=IF(OR([@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Meetings”,[@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Holidays”),”Yes”,”No”).

This formula will enter Yes in the ‘ACTIVE?’ column whenever the ‘Event Type’ is Meetings or Holidays. Otherwise, it will be set to No.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Display more than one event type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Display more than one event type

 

Calendar appears as shown below.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Display More than One Event Type - Calendar
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Display More than One Event Type – Calendar

 

4. Filter (and not display) events of more than one specific ‘Event Type’

The formula will be

=IF(OR([@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Meetings”,[@[EVENT TYPE]]=”Holidays”),”No”,”Yes”).

This formula will enter No in the ‘ACTIVE?’ column whenever the ‘Event Type’ is Meetings or Holidays. Otherwise, it will be set to Yes.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Filter more than one Event Type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Filter more than one Event Type

 

Calendar will appear as below.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Filter more than one Event Type
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Filter more than one Event Type

 

This is how we can easily control which event types’ events are displayed on the calendars. We just saw the ‘Yearly’ calendar design but there are totally 7 calendar designs in the template which will be automatically created for you instantly.

5 reasons why events are not displayed on Calendar

Posted on

In this article, we will cover the reasons why your events may not be displayed on the calendars in our Event Calendar Maker Excel Template. You may enter some events data in the ‘Events’ sheet, then go over to the Calendar design sheets and be disappointed not to see those events displayed on the calendars. Let’s see why that might happen and how to avoid them.

REASONS

Please note that the reasons are also available inside the template in the Events sheet at the top. Just select YES to the ‘Do you need Help?’ question.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Help Section
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Help Section

 

The following is the list of potential reasons. We will see them in detail further down this post.

  1. Validation Field shows ‘Error’
    1. Event Start Date is blank (or empty)
    2. Event End Date is before the Event Start Date
    3. Frequency Type is blank
  2. Validation Field shows ‘Not displayed’
    1. Event End Date is before the Calendar Start Date
    2. Event Start Date is after the Calendar End Date
  3. Data has more than 300 active events and 1200 active instances
  4. Event Type is blank or not one of the Event Types listed in the Home sheet.
  5. Event is not entered inside the ‘Events Table’

 

VIDEO DEMO

 

1. Validation Field shows ‘Error’

The last column (column U) in the table is ‘Validation’. If it displays ‘Error’ for any row, then that event will not be displayed on the calendars.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Error
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Error

 

The potential reasons for the error are

  • Event Start Date is blank (or empty)
  • Event End Date is before the Event Start Date
  • Frequency Type is blank

Event Start Date, Event End Date (except for One-time events) and Frequency Type are required fields and without them the event cannot be displayed.

 

2. Validation Field shows ‘Not Displayed’

The same validation field may show ‘Not Displayed’.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Not Displayed
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Not Displayed

This can happen if a) Event End Date is before the Calendar Start Date or b) Event Start Date is after the Calendar End Date.

Calendar Start Date is what you enter in the Home sheet.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Calendar Start Date
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Calendar Start Date

 

In the below image, Event Event Date is Dec 1, 2015. Calendar Start Date is Jan 1, 2016. Hence this event will not be displayed on the calendars.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Event End is before the Calendar Start
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Event End is before the Calendar Start

 

In the below image, Event Start Date is Feb 1, 2017. Assuming the same Calendar Start Date of Jan 1, 2016 and it will end on Jan 31, 2016 as the template is a 12-month calendar template. Hence this event will not be displayed on the calendars.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Event Start Date is after Calendar End Date
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Event Start Date is after Calendar End Date

 

3. Data has more than 300 active events and 1200 active instances

The template is designed to handle 300 active events and 1200 active instances. You can deactivate an event by entering No in the ACTIVE? column.

The number of events and instances are displayed on the Events sheet at the top. If the number of events is greater than 300 or if the number of instances is greater than 1200, those additional event instances will not displayed. Please limit the number of instances if possible.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - More than 1200 instances
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – More than 1200 instances

 

4. Event Type is blank or not one of the Event Types listed in the Home sheet

The template uses the Event Types to be able to color the events on the calendar. As we map each Event Type to a color in the Home sheet, this drives all the colors on the calendars.

Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Event Types
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Event Types

 

So, if you do not enter an Event Type in the event row in the Events sheet, then the template does not know how to color the event on the calendars. Please note that the event will still be listed but not colored.

There are 7 calendar designs in the template and 5 of them list events along with coloring. 2 of the designs do not list the events, but show the colors on the calendars.

Similarly, if you mistype an Event Type and that is not one of the Event Types you have set in the Home sheet, it will have the same result. So, please make sure that the correct Event type is selected for each event.

 

5. Event is not entered inside the ‘Events Table’

Data entry in the Events sheet should be done inside the table.

For more on Excel Tables – please see these videos from Useful Excel for Beginners course

The data in the table should begin from row 11. So, to begin entering your events, please enter your first event in row 11. Then, enter in row 12 and so on. If any of the events is not displayed on the calendars, to check whether the data is inside the table, follow this simple step. Let’s say your event entered in row 12 is not getting displayed on calendar.

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Events Data
Event Calendar Maker – Excel Template – Events Data

 

Click on cell A12. Check at the top menu section to see if a new ‘Table Tools’ ribbon appears. If it appears, your data is inside the table, if not, it is not. 🙂 In the image below, when I had clicked on cell A11, the Table Tools ribbon appears, but it does not when I clicked on cell A12.

 

Event Calendar Maker - Excel Template - Table Tools Ribbon

This issue will not happen if you enter first in row 11 and then in row 12 and move on one row at a time.

How to prioritize events on multi-event days?

Posted on

In this article, we will see how we can control the order in which events appear on days that have multiple events. We will be using the Event Calendar Maker Excel template.

You can watch this video or follow the instructions in text further below.

 

First, in the Home sheet, let’s create three event types and assign them to colors.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Event types
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Event types

 

Then, let’s create actual events.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Events
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Events

 

Once the data is entered, the 7 calendar designs are automatically created.  We will use the ‘Monthly with Events’ design for this demo, since it can display up to 5 events per day. The month of February 2016 will appear as shown below.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Calendar
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Calendar

 

As we zoom into Feb 8th (where all 3 events overlap), we will see that the 3 events appear in the order in which they are entered in the Events table.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Feb 8th - Initial
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Feb 8th – Default

 

I would like to change the order and have Conference appear at the top, followed by Stakeholder Update and finally Team Meeting. This will create a nice teal band (Conference) at the top all the way from Feb 4th to Feb 15th. 🙂 It is very easy to do that with this template. We will use the PRIORITY column in the Events table to assign the priority among events. (as shown below).

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Priority
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Priority

 

Now, when we see the calendar, the order has changed. 🙂

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Calendar - Prioritized
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Calendar – Prioritized

 

And Feb 8th specifically looks like this.

Event Calendar Maker Excel Template - Feb 8th - Prioritized
Event Calendar Maker Excel Template – Feb 8th – Prioritized

 

This is how you can easily control the order of events on the calendar. If there are any questions, please leave them in the comments. Thank you.

How to create U.S. holidays on Calendar?

Posted on

In this video, I create official U.S. holidays on calendar using our Event Calendar Maker Excel template. It is to illustrate the functionality of the template where creating events such as 3rd Monday of a month and last Monday of a month is simple and easy. Watch the video to learn how you can also create similar events for such holidays or special days in your organization.

 

How to create annual events on Calendar?

Posted on

It is very easy to create annual events such as Birthdays or Anniversaries, using our Event Calendar Maker Template. In the video below, I explain how to create such events and then re-use the same template year after year. There are multiple ways to create the desired effect. I create events that occur every 12 months in the video.

 

Another approach would be to create one-time events and then every year come and change just the year alone. Changing the year for all the events can be done easily by Excel’s built-in ‘Find and Replace’ feature by pressing Ctrl+F.

Also, please remember that you can create quarterly events by simply choosing N = 3 instead of 12. The template is designed to be very flexible to accommodate various scenarios and it does so with minimal data entry as well. 🙂

NOTES
Please note that only the features that are mentioned here are possible in this template. Here are some examples of what the template does not do.

  • The template doesn’t create any reminders for events.
    The template is not integrated with any other software. It’s a stand-alone Excel workbook file.
