Numbers - Year on a Page

Easy way to create a reference calendar page

Did you know that you can create a Year-on-a-Page calendar in Apple Numbers? Creating a custom calendar will be more productive to hang up near your desk work or on the back of a kitchen cabinet.

You can put all the important dates and customize the month's colors to your liking. This template gives you more flexibility than some websites. (I wasn't able to find similar functionality in Excel or Word.)

Five Things I Learned about the Calendar Template in Numbers

To get the Year-On-A-Page, simply open up Apple Numbers, select new, go to the Education category and select Academic Calendar.

To change the start date, simply, click on the month (September - by default) and then select the month. You can change the year by selecting the year and then up/down arrow the year.

There is a Month tab that allows you to fill in specific details for each month. Data entered here doesn't get carried over to the Description area on the Year-On-A-Page view. (That would be very nice)

You can highlight the background of days but you can't change the text, for example, add an Emoji on your birthday.

The Header text has no effect on the Calendar, so you can enter whatever you want.
