About the 2022 Annual Calendar Template

You already have calendars for appointments and daily deadlines. Yet you might be lacking one that allows you to reflect on your team’s growth and accomplishments over a year, or on large-scale project timelines. A yearly calendar template can help you make sense of what you spend most of your energy on during a twelve-month period. By visually representing commitments and goals, you can reprioritize them as needed.

What is an annual calendar?

An online annual calendar mimics the paper-based wall planners that used to hang on office walls. The grid structure serves anyone who wants to plan out their year in different “chunks” or streams of focus and commitments. 

Mapped out over a 12-month period, this yearly calendar offers a bird’s-eye view of your year. You and your team can make long-term plans, document the busiest (or quietest) moments, and reflect on accomplishments throughout the year. 

You can also use them for a personal or team-oriented “annual review.” On a weekly or monthly basis, you can start to notice patterns of productivity, distractions, and goal-setting. Based on what you learn, you can make changes and better long-term decisions. Spend too much time in meetings? Don’t take enough time off? An annual calendar can help you see how your time is truly spent.

The goal is to get a sense of the key priorities, commitments, and ambitions for the year ahead, and visually document where the majority of your time has been spent.

Customizing a Yearly Calendar Template is simple. Miro’s whiteboard tool is the perfect canvas to plan ahead without losing context or focus. Get started today by selecting the Annual Calendar Template, and customizing it to fit your needs:

  1. Name your color-coded streams. These could be the names of places, people, events, short- or long-term projects significant to your work or personal calendar year.

  2. Drag a shape onto your start date and resize it horizontally to represent a date range.

  3. Connect to other elements: arrows, notes, symbols … take your pick! Annotate or mark it as you see fit for future reference.

  4. Adjust your timeframe as time passes or plans change. Whether it’s in-the-moment markers or future plans being recorded for reference, you will be able to see at a glance how your year looks. Share it with your team, or keep it for your personal reference as needed.

Already thinking ahead to next year? In this template, you will find the yearly calendars for 2022 and 2023 to help you get a head start on your annual planning.

Project Proposal Template

For any type of project, the Project Proposal template can be a crucial step toward clarifying the context, goals, and scope of a project to get stakeholder buy-in. A project proposal outlines what you want to accomplish, your goals, and how you plan to achieve them. Generally, a project proposal gives the reader some context on the project, explains why it is important, and lists the actions that you will take to complete it. Project proposals have myriad uses. Often, businesses use project proposals to get external buy-in from a donor or outside stakeholder. But many companies draw up project proposals for internal buy-in too.
