Week Column with Color Sidebars Template

The Week Column template generates generates a calendar showing 7 days on a single page. Each day will be a column, with all-day events at the top and timeslot rows below. Events and tasks having start/end times will have color-coded sidebars within their associated timeslot cells, and descriptive text shown to the right of the sidebars. This template is similar to the Week Columns style, except it uses less colored ink when printing and optimizes the space available for the text content of events and tasks.

Template Settings

The Week Column with Color Sidebars template provides the following options when creating a calendar...

Start dateThe start date can be typed into the box or selected using the drop-down arrow. This date will be the left-most column in the generated calendar. If you want Sunday to be the first day of the week, make sure to pick Sunday as the starting date. Otherwise, pick Monday or any other day you'd like to have shown in the first column.

TimeslotsA timeslot range and interval can be specified. The output will only show times between the specified start and end values. Each row will correspond to the specified timeslot length, such as 30 minutes.
