A Calendar Wizard Tutorial

The Calendar Wizard is a powerful tool in Calendar Creator that is designed to help you quickly create custom calendars.

To create a calendar using Calendar Wizard:

  1. From the Calendar Creator Hub, select the Create a Calendar Using the Calendar Wizard option, then click Next to continue.
  2. Select a layout template for your calendar. In the Select a Format area choose Tall, Wide or All. The available layout templates display in the Preview browser. Click on the template you want to work with, then click the Next button.

Note: Use the Preview list box to choose and preview in the browser any of the views available to your chosen template.

  1. Select a QuickStyle. QuickStyles are font and color stylings that you can apply to the layout template you selected in Step 2. The style you select in the list on the left displays in the Preview area on the right. When you find one you like, click Next.

Note: Use the Preview list box to choose and preview in the browser the calendar view you are interested in creating.

  1. Select an Image Set. An image set is a set of images grouped by theme. These appear in place of the place holders in your finished calendar. When you select an image set in the list on the left it displays in the Preview area on the right. When you find an image set you like, click Next.

Note: To return to a previous step and change any of your prior selections, click the Back button.

  1. Add the events you would like on your calendar. Select the event categories you want included in your calendar. To select more than one category, make your first selection, then hold down the Ctrl key while selecting any additional ones.

Be sure not to select too many categories. We suggest you not exceed 3 because you'll want to leave room in the calendar cells for your own events!

  1. Click Finish. Depending on the speed of your system, it may take a few moments for the Calendar Wizard to create a new calendar with your selections.

The calendar you've just created with Calendar Wizard is ready to use as designed or it can be customized further using the features described in the Customizing Your Calendar section of this Help file. Either way, when your friends and colleagues see the results you've achieved with Calendar Wizard they just might believe you resorted to magic!
