Evernote fans, rejoice! You’ve been asking for them, you wait for them every year, and now the 2018 Evernote planner templates are here! This year, thanks to the new tables feature, the planners are more versatile, easier to work with, and more fun than ever before.

For those of you who are new to Evernote planners, we hope these become an end-of-the-year tradition for you. Keeping your planner in Evernote means you can organize your life, link appointments to other notes (think: the hair appointment links to the photo of the hairstyle you clipped, or the Tuesday meeting entry links right to the agenda). Not only that, your calendar can follow you on every device, and you can even share it with coworkers and family so they know when it’s okay to book a meeting, or when you’re free for Happy Hour.

Color your own planner templates

Starbucks did it around the world this year: they let you color your own holiday cup. So why not color your own Evernote planner, too? We’ve presented you with some color suggestions, but you’re not bound to them. Customize them to your favorites. Here’s how to do it:

Or, if you love Evernote’s green planners, you can get a beautifully-designed set of templates in green, too.

Ending Calendar Wars

Does the week start on Sunday or Monday? We’ve heard from so many of you about this, and the verdict is in: everybody wins. It’s super easy to change the days of the week around to customize your planner just the way you like. Follow these directions to do it.

New to Evernote templates? You’re in for a treat. These planners are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Here’s how to get them:

  • Click on the link(s) below, and then look for the “save to Evernote’ button.
  • A copy will appear in your Evernote account. You can mark them up from there.
  • For other templates (and there are so many to choose from) follow the same process, but instead of marking them up, duplicate the template and mark up the copy so you always have a fresh version when you need one. Handy.

Start the new year right! Get your 2018 planner templates now and start making 2018 your best year yet!

    How can i adjust the Planner to fit on my Iphone screen?

    • Monica

      OMG yes I hate that the 2018 calendar won’t fit on my iPhone screen like the 2027 did. Someone let me know if you find out how!

      • Pamela Rosen

        Hi, Monica, Evernote tables are optimized for cell readability on mobile. So the best way to look at them is to scroll horizontally. Hope that helps! -Pam R

  • Urbano Freitas


    The templates are awesome. But I would really like is to know how could I create personalize templates for me with this quality level.

    I didn’t find any tutorial on the KB. Is there one?

    Thanks in advance.

  • GetInfoTricks

    Thank You.,
    & Keep the good work.

    why not just make 2 sets of monthly calendars ? one starts on monday and the other sunday

    • Daly

      How do you get dated weekly calendars? And how do you get the monthly calendars to begin with Monday? The calendars are pretty, but there’s no instruction that I can see as to how one makes these very basic kinds of changes.

      • Pamela Rosen

        Hi, Daly, Here’s a help document that will give you step-by-step instructions to do just that. There’s even a video to guide your way. Hope that helps! -Pam R

    • Dean

      Like for your comment baiyi.

      Evernote please don’t make us do more steps than necessary.
      Making two tables is a problem for a corporation making saas for planning and note-taking. so the users must do it on their own and use their new shiny tables. cmon

    • Joe

      RIGHT? To say it’s “super easy” to change the 12 monthly calendars is a bit of a stretch.

  • Craig

    Unbelievable these templates will not show in my phone. How useless. I was excited to see them, but even sideways (which I should not have to do), they do not all show on my iPhone.

    • Pamela Rosen

      Hi, Craig, the templates do need to be looked at sideways, because that gives you the widest space possible. We felt it would be difficult to read the contents of a table cell in mobile in vertical view because that would make each cell too skinny. However, if you’re having difficulty getting them at all, please send a tweet to @EvernoteHelps and they can get you where you want to be with those calendars. -Pam R

  • Daniel Parsons

    can these link with google calendars in any way?

  • Shawn

    Does evernote read these? How do we get these templates if we use a google connected account to log in? everywhere else I have the ‘google’ sign in button, but when I want to download templates, it wants a manual sign in and the credentials don’t pass correctly.

    • Pamela Rosen

      Hi, Shawn, We do read every comment. It sounds like you could use some tech support. Please send a tweet to @EvernoteHelps, and someone can answer all those questions! -Pam R

  • Daniel

    If the calendar on my PC that opens when I click the time in the lower right corner shows Sunday as the beginning of the week along with pretty much every other calendar I see, then that’s what I’ll use.

  • Linda

    The Daily Planner doesn’t have dates on it? Is that right?

    • Pamela Rosen

      Hi, Linda, that’s right. Start with a template and copy it into a new note. Once you have a fresh copy, you can change any element you like, for example, changing “Daily” to “Monday” or today’s date. The next day, copy the template again and change the date. Hope that helps! -Pam R

  • Mark

    Nice-looking calendars, thanks.

    One thing that I would like to see is a link on the site to a templates page. I’ve gotten emails like this in the past about downloadable Evernote templates and have always wondered what other templates are available, but cannot find them.

    • Pamela Rosen

      Here’s a blog post that links to a lot of terrific Evernote templates. However, we’re always adding more, so the best way to explore all of them is to go to the Evernote blog and type “templates” in the search bar. You’ll see every post that contains Evernote templates! There’s so much to see! -Pam R

  • paul

    When I follow the instructions to download weekly calendars I get only this week. Anybody help as to what Im doing wrong ?

    • Pamela Rosen

      Hi, Paul! Thanks for grabbing those calendars, I know you’ll love working with them. Evernote templates are meant to be re-used. There is only one week in the weekly template so that you can copy a new version each week and change the date to the current week. Save the template to Evernote, then simply duplicate the template every week and re-name it. That way, you’ll always have a fresh copy! Let us know if you have other questions! -Pam R

    I’ve been using Evernote since 2008, and Premium too. Why, I don’t know…My whole life is in EN. Very scary, but a whole different topic…

    I don’t investigate or use every new feature, but I have adapted EN to my needs for almost a decade, and created many Templates for my own use, mostly using the basic tools. But, I would kill for a good table-based Calendar template.

    Well, sorry, these aren’t it…

    The new tables have quirky design and behavior. I assume that will be fixed in time…

    But these Templates are hard to use + customize. It’s OK that I just wasted an hour figuring out how to customize a monthly calendar, and then had to try to fill in dates for January. Now I have to repeat that for 12 months? C’mon! Come back to me when you’ve got 12 months of templates for 2018, with dates filled in. And Sun-Mon or Mon-Sun. options.

    Also, your text how-to’s are hard to find, confusing and incomplete. Videos way too fast — and with no sound track? Totally useless…

    You need to prioritize instructional content. Hire a few writers who understand how to write for new users + learners, not just spew talking points. You’ve got a customer, and you’re going to lose them because they can’t figure it out? Makes no sense. And such an easy fix…

    No disrespect intended to any of the great people who work so hard to make Evernote the great product it is.

    I sincerely apologize for the rant. I’m just a writer in a bad mood.

  • Doe

    Are you kidding us? “super easy” change of starting a calender beginning mondays with changing every sunday date MANUALLY?
    poor boys. Look elsewhere.

  • Roger

    New to these template calenders; how is today’s date made to show up ?
    Previously I used reminders for calendar functions; is there a way to import my existing reminders into the templates ?

  • Carmen Verheijen

    I use these for menu planning. Would like to print each month though and can get this in the right format. Please advice.

  • Mark

    So here’s what I want to do …
    Each day, I create a new note from the Daily Planner template in a notebook (*Daily Log).

    Is there a way to automate process to avoid the tedious, step-by-step of:
    – navigating to the template
    – duplicate in the *Daily Log notebook
    – navigate to the *Daiiy Log notebook and modify the note for that day.

    I have searched Zapier and Workflow apps, but can’t find anything like that, and I lack the expertise to create something for myself.

    Any suggestions?

  • Shelley

    Do any of the calendar apps permit importing data from iOS calendar?
