Adding personal events to the Easy-Print 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 the blue “Add Event List” button in the “My Event Lists” 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 section “Calendar types” below for details).

Then click the “Save” button.

Repeat this process if you wish to create several separate event lists. All lists are displayed in the “My Calendars” section on the left.

Editing or deleting an event list

Hover your mouse cursor over an event list in the “My Calendars” section on the left. Click on the grey pen icon to change the list's name or color; click on the red X to delete the list.

Calendar types

To create a calendar containing all sorts of events, recurring or non-recurring, do not tick the box “Anniversary/Birthday events” when creating an event list. 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 be automatically 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

You can choose between two different interfaces to add and manage your events:

  • The calendar interface
  • The list interface

The Calendar Interface

To select this interface, click on the calendar symbol in the top-right corner (depicts a rectangle divided into twelve small squares).

To add an event, click on the event's date in the calendar. Then follow these steps:

  • At the top of the dialog that pops up, 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 (defaults to the date you selected in the calendar)
  • Optional: select in which color the event should be displayed in the calendar (*)
  • Optional: set up repetitions for the event (see section “Repeating events” below for details)
  • Click “Save”

To edit or delete an event, click on the event in the calendar interface. To delete an event, hover over the event in the list that pops up, then click on the red cross (x) on the right. To edit, click on the date of the event you wish to edit.

The List Interface

To select this interface, click on the list symbol in the top-right corner (depicts a rectangle divided into three small squares and three lines).

To add an event, click on the green “Add Event” button. Then follow these steps:

  • 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
  • Optional: select in which color the event should be displayed in the calendar (*)
  • Optional: set up repetitions for the event (see section “Repeating events” below for details)
  • Click “Save”

To delete an event, hover over the event in the list, then click on the red cross (x) on the right. To edit, click on the date of the event you wish to edit.

(*) Yearly calendar format: If multiple events with different colors fall on the same date, the color of the event first added will be displayed in the calendar. In monthly format, all colors are shown.

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 “repeat 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 “End date”, select the time frame. If the event is to be repeated indefinitely, select “Never”. To specify the number of repetitons, select the second option (“set occurrences”) and enter the number of occurrences in the text field. The last option (“set date”) 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.
