I have been a long-time fan of Day-Timer and your products. Two years ago, I was promoted in a Local Sales Manager position for a TV Station. The challenge with “organization” is as follows:
- I work out of two offices that are 60 miles apart.
- I manage 13 people, therefore I began carrying a legal yellow pad (pink when I can find it) so that I could basically make note of everything, and everyone that I speak to throughout the day (I accumulate around 12 per year and save them as an archive of sorts).
- Being a female manager, I want everything to look feminine but not over the top.
- Because I am so mobile, I use Outlook Calendar to sync my appointment between my phone and office.
I want to use your products. I love your products. But I can’t seem to figure out how to make it all work. - DK

I use the folio weekly planner and love it. But I have to use Outlook so my assistant at work can keep track of my schedule (and that’s synced to my cell phone app).
I much prefer the paper version planner but am in a trap it seems. How can I get away from making three entries into my planner/Outlook (one entry on the monthly calendar in my planner, one for the week/day, and the Outlook one)? My life doesn’t feel like it’s simple anymore despite how organized and planned out I get.
Any suggestions? – TC
