If you have ever used a spreadsheet program on the computer, then you know how simple and basic creating a monthly calendar template from Google sheets can be. This is a common process for most people who use spreadsheets to organize their lives and keep track of important dates and appointments. The template that Google includes with the program makes creating one very simple and easy.
There are two steps that you will need to complete in order to customize your template. These steps are listed below. Go to the “Calendars” section on the main page of Google. On the left side of the page, you will see a drop down menu with three dots. Click on “List”. Now you have the option of selecting what type of list you would like, a list of days, a list of weeks, or a list of months.
You will want to make a list of the events that occur each month. You can include a lot of information here, such as a full schedule of all events, pictures of each event, comments from other users about the event, and anything else that you may think would be helpful to have listed here. You can also add notes to each entry on the list as well.
Now you will need to go to the “Forms” section on this page. To create a list of forms, you will click on the drop down menu next to the “List of Forms”. A pop up menu will appear where you can choose what type of list you want. A list of days will create a daily spreadsheet, a list of weeks will create a weekly spreadsheet, and a list of months will create a monthly spreadsheet. Once you have selected the type of list that you want, you will click “Create”. A copy of the created spreadsheet will be saved onto your computer.
To edit the template that you have just created, you will click the “iods” link next to the list of days. Here you will be able to change the month, day, or week number that you have set. You can also change the name of the cells that you have put the calendar in. These cells are usually named according to the form that they are currently placed in. This makes life easier as you will know exactly where to look for the information that you need. You can also find other calculators and programs online that use the same template that you have created.
Once you have edited your calendar spreadsheet, you will be able to save it to your computer by clicking on the “Save” button. You may want to preview the changes before saving it to ensure that it looks exactly the way that you want. If there are any changes that you want to make, you will click “sheets” and then “sheets tab”. Google Docs will open up and you will be able to find all of your saved files.
The last step is to download the template that you have created. You will need to find the calendar that you have created through Google Docs and click the “Google Calendar” icon. Then you will need to click on “New” and create a new spreadsheet from the drop down menu that you have seen earlier. You will fill out all of the information that you have written on the template. You will then want to click the “Save” button to save your calendar to your computer. It should automatically save it, but if not you will need to click “again” on the Google Calendar sheet so that it will upload.
Creating a monthly calendar through Google Docs is an easy process. You will need to be aware of how to do many things, but once you get the hang of it, creating your own monthly calendar will become second nature to you. You will have a template that you can work with for each month. You will be able to change the month, day, and week whenever you want. This is a great way to get your creative juices flowing so that you can come up with a monthly calendar that will truly show your friends and family just how creative you are!
