2008 2 Pages Per Day Calendar Pack

I created this template for my daily planner pages and thought I'd share it. I borrowed design elements from quite a few other templates on here, I hope no one minds.

It's designed to fit on classic sized pages. There is a month on 2 pages at the beginning along with a monthly index to be printed on the duplex side of the month.

The rest of the pages are the daily pages with a personal task list, work task list and a daily timeline from 7AM to 7PM. The daily page also displays the current month along with the previous and next month. The last page is the daily notes page which should be printed on the back sides of the daily timeline pages.

There is also a reference calendar page for 2008-2011.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

I'm attaching the openoffice source file for anyone to modify for their own use. I only created the month of April for Daily pages, but there are master slides for the rest of the months of the year. To change the master layout of the slide, right-click on the slide, select Page, then Slide Design and choose another monthly master to change the months displayed. The only thing that needs to be edited once this is done is the day of the week and the day number.

I am unsure about this winzip thing that keeps popping up when I want to download a page to use from this website. Am I missing something or do I have to purchase this $30.00 program to be able to use any of the offered calendars here?


Does it happen when you're downloading the .pdf files or the .odg? It's possible (guessing here without more information) that your computer thinks that one of those types of files - or all unknown files - are zipped.

Zipped files are compressed and must be un-zipped to be read. These files aren't, zipped files have the .zip extension.

zip extension

When I downloaded the file, it came with a zip extension. I guess it doesn't show up on DIYPlanner, because it only recognizes the first extension.

However, the solution is quite simple. In Windows Explorer or whatever you use to manage files in Windows, rename the file, removing the .zip extension, leaving only the .odg extension. OOo should now have no problems opening the "file."

You see, OOo uses zip files to contain its documents. If you were to unzip this odg file, you would discover a folder full of goodies. That's how OOo works, apparently.

So, to summarize, simply remove the .zip extension, leaving the .odg, and you will be fine opening it in OOo.


Master Pages?

I'm new to OO and changing the designs so forgive me if this sounds trivial.

The layout is nearly perfect for what I was looking for, Franklin-Covey modification. Therefore, I would like to make a July section from your April submission. Which page is considered the Master page? Following your instructions I don't see where the change needs to be made for the rest of the pages to be populated for July. I'm sure it is something very simple that I'm over looking. Any assistance would be appreciated.

BTW - I d/l'd the widget kit too.


sorry for the late reply. I

sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on diyplanner in a while.

To change the master slide, you need to right-click and select Page.
You will then get a Slide Design option.
In that list, there will be thumbnails of the pages. scroll down and select the one you want to change to. It will update everything on the page except the day number and day text. The month text, current,previous and next month should all update to the master slide you select.

To view the masters or make changes to them yourself, you would need to select Master, from the View menu.

Finally something that looks

Finally something that looks like it would work.
Any plans to build a 2009 version? or a blank one (no calendars on the pages)could then just write in the date.

Have you looked at the Dynamic Templates ?

Specifically, the Two Pages Per Day Template
"I think the surest sign that there is intelligent life out there in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." (Calvin and Hobbes/Bill Waterson)


first, ygor, i think if this person wanted to use the dynamic template, s/he would have, instead of searching for this particular template.

second, to actually answer this posters question, you have two (maybe 3) options for getting the 2009 version. 1) the original person who made the template could generate the 2009 version (but, I don't think he has been on the site for a while...) 2) you could download the .odg file provided into the Open Office program (free program) and make the edits you would like or the 3rd possibility is for someone here on the site who is fluent with the open office program, could volunteer to make this update to 2009 for all of us! :) Hint, hint. I have never quite understood Open Office, otherwise I would volunteer myself.

Best of luck in getting your desired template! This is really a great looking template! If someone does update it to either 2009 or undated, please make sure to upload here so we can all use it!

nay nay :)

I disagree

...and I am going to do my best to respond without getting snippy or rude or anything like that, so cut me some slack in that direction, please.

  1. The poster is Anonymous / unregistered. When I answer a "guest" poster, my responses are based on the assumption that I may never hear from them again. It is entirely possible that they did not "see" the Dynamics as they are separate from the static templates and would not show up on a search.
  2. There are LOTS of template requests like this floating about. Especially calendar type requests. I do not have the time or desire to whip up a customized template for each and every request. Do you ? That was one big motivation to me to create the Dynamics. Contrarywise, this is D.I.Y.-Planner, but many folks do not want to Do It for themselves. They want you or me to Do It For Them.
  3. If you compare this template to my Daily Dynamic, you will see that the layout is basically the same, with minor cosmetic differences, so I was not reflexively doing my "Google is your friend" response.
