Whiteboard calendars are a thing of beauty for busy people. At their simplest, whiteboard calendars help you remember stuff; but when fully leveraged, they can allow multiple people to track multiple projects, and forecast and avoid time constraints and conflicts well in advance.
What to Consider
The right whiteboard calendar can transform your work or home life, because it will get everyone on the same page. But that’s only if you select the right one. Keep the below in mind, and you’ll be well on your way to a smoother schedule!
Size: Think of how much information you need to include per day, and the size of the space you have to put the board up in. Our calendars range in size from about 16 x 11 inches to about 52 x 36 inches.
The setting: Do you need a calendar for your fridge, your family room, a school setting or your office? We have calendars that would work well in all of those settings and more, below.
Additional features: Some calendars are completely magnetized, allowing you to hang documents from them; others come with markers and additional space for to-do lists, while others are straight-forward and streamlined.
Time-frame: We include calendars for planning your year at a glance, or drilling down into your weekly, even daily tasks.
