Free Activity Calendar for Seniors

Hi Donna!

We've added the yearly calendar printing back for members - however this still only works for word documents (.docx), and not in the PDF version.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Philip!

When you say dropdown, do you mean the "Starts on" field? If so, this is just what day the month starts, when you download the calendar it should have all days of the week.

If I'm not understanding you correctly, can you please send a copy of your downloaded calendar to [email protected] so we can take a look?

Thanks :)

Sensory Pouches for Dementia Care

Hi Aubree!

From memory the ziplocks were just standard google qualtiy ziplocks purcahsed from a supermarket. Nothing very special and should be fairly easy to source. You can see them without the coverings in the video at the 10 second mark.

Hope that helps!

Hi Amy!

We have tested Google Docs compatibiltiy before, and it works surprisingly well with our standard plain calendars (even icons) if you change the page orientation to Landscape after importing it. But sadly Google Docs does not support background images or transparency.

I personally use Google Drive extensively and would love that kind of integration, especially the always online/cloud features, but until they can support those feature it's not feasible.

The only workable solution is to use the plain calendar, import it into Google Docs, anbd then go to File > Page Setup, then choose Landscape, and you can set a solid background color.

Hope that helps!

Hi Ash!

We did some updates a couple months ago where we made some updates, and removed the remove weekends options as it seems very few people were using it.

We are woking on some improvents and will look at adding this back. :)
