Adding personal events to the Printable PDF Calendar

To add personal events to our Printable PDF Calendars, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the “My events” page
  2. Create a new event list
  3. Add events to the event list
  4. Apply the event list to a PDF calendar

Creating a new event list

To start setting up your calendar, please click on “New event list” in the “Create” section on the left side of the screen.

  • Enter a name for the event list you wish to create
  • Select the type of calendar (see below for details).

Then click the green “Add event list” button.

Repeat this process if you wish to create several separate event lists. All lists are displayed in the “Event lists” section on the left. Click on an event list there to edit it.

Calendar types

To create a calendar containing all sorts of events, recurring or non-recurring, do not tick the box “Anniversary/Birthday events”. When adding an event to this event list, you can choose if and how frequently this event recurs (see “Repeating events” section for instructions).

If you wish to use the calendar to display events recurring on a yearly basis, such as birthdays and anniversaries, tick the box “Anniversary/Birthday events”. Each event will automatically be repeated yearly and the year count for each event (e.g. the person's age) will be displayed.

Note: If adding a birthday, enter the person's birth date as the date for the event. Otherwise the year count will be incorrect.

Adding events to the event list

Start populating the event list by clicking on “New event” on the left side of the screen.

  • At the top of the interface, enter a title for the event.
  • In the “Add to event list” drop-down menu, select the event list you wish to add this event to.
  • Enter a date for the event

Click the green “Add event” button when all relevant fields have been filled out.

Repeating events

If you select a general event list (i.e. not “Anniversary/Birthday calendar”) in the “Add to event list” drop-down menu, you can choose if and how frequently the event is to be repeated on your calendar.

  • In the “Repeat” menu, select the frequency unit (e.g. daily or monthly)
  • In the “Repeats every” menu, specify if the event is to be repeated for every unit (e.g. every day or every month) or only for some of them (e.g. every other day or every third month).
  • In the section entitled “Ends”, select the time frame. If the event is to be repeated indefinitely, select “Never”. To specify the number of repetitons, select the second option and enter the number of occurrences in the field. The last option allows you to enter an end date.

Applying the event list to a calendar

Click the blue “Create PDF calendar” button on the “My events” overview page. This will take you to the standard PDF calendar set-up menu where you can select the type of calendar, define the period (years and months), the country and state, layout, paper size, and more.

In the drop-down menu entitled “My events”, select the event list you wish to add to the calendar. You can also add more than two or more event lists to any one calendar. Then click the green “Create PDF” button and open or save the PDF file that is created.
