About the Monthly Planner Template

A monthly planner template can come in handy, especially if you have big projects and goals to accomplish for the month. It helps to take a big picture, 10,000-foot view of things—meaning a 30-day view. Use our monthly planner template to create a visual representation that enables you to track and space out every deadline and to-do, both for individuals and entire teams. You’ll even be able to customize it your way, with images, video, and sticky notes. 

You can also download it and make a printable monthly planner. 

What is an online monthly planner?

An online monthly planner is a visual planning tool that allows you to add tasks and events to a monthly calendar, with the goal of properly spacing out your time throughout the month and ensuring tasks are completed in a timely fashion. It can be used by businesses, as an academic planner, an individual to plan out their month, or by teams with input from multiple team members to plan out tasks for a given project. You can use a template like Miro’s online calendar planner, a desktop/mobile app like Google Calendar, or Microsoft Outlook to loop in teammates, who can view and edit events from their iPhone, Android, or laptop.

3 benefits of using an online calendar for monthly planning

An online monthly planner has several advantages over a printable monthly planner: it’s more collaborative, more visual, and easier to use. 

1. Make your schedule visually come to life

Miro’s online monthly planner allows you to upload images like company logos and icons to go with the tasks you create. This makes your monthly planning more engaging, and allows you to visualize your tasks more easily at-a-glance from the calendar view. 

2. Loop in other team members

A custom planner allows you to tag team members on certain tasks, assign them tasks, or ask for notes with ease. Give everyone on your team access to the planner, so you can get a high-level overview of what everyone’s doing, due dates, and necessary resources. 

3. Leave sticky notes and comments

Using an online planner not only lets you assign out tasks, but also gets feedback and updates the planner with stickers and comments. This turns the monthly planner into a living, breathing document that evolves as your project evolves.

How to use your online visual monthly planner in 3 steps

Here’s a simple guide on how to use, and get the most out of, your online monthly planner. 

1. Choose a template

Choose from a range of templates in Miro’s template gallery: you can use either a weekly or monthly planner. You can also use multiple templates simultaneously to plan out longer periods of time, i.e. a stacking daily planner, weekly planner, and monthly planner.

2. Add events or tasks using sticky notes or texts

With your template chosen, you can then start adding individual tasks, events, or to-do lists using text blocs or sticky notes. Make sure to tag the right people on these tasks so everyone knows what to do.

3. Add visuals

Company logos and icons, pictures, and more bring some personality and fun to your work. They’re also a great way to quickly identify separate projects in your monthly planner.

Tip: Don't forget to share your online visual Monthly Planner with your team – shared space allows you to collaborate on tasks, arrange meetings and achieve goals together!

FAQs about the Monthly Planner template

How do I organize my calendar?

Start by breaking each individual day into blocks: morning, afternoon, and evening. Make sure to keep the number of events in each block limited, and add sticky notes to flesh out any interrelated tasks or to-do-lists. Also, make sure you give yourself enough time between events, so that you’re not rushing too much to keep your schedule.

What should I put in my calendar?

If you’re a student, then you should add your classes in, time for studying and doing homework. Fill in personal events around school-related ones. If you’re a professional, then input any meetings, important deadlines, or work-related tasks that you need to complete. You can also use the online monthly planner to track your team’s projects, set goals, and share project deadlines and meetings with teammates.

Can I use Miro to create an online personal planner?

Yes. Miro has a monthly planner template that you can use and customize to your own needs and preferences, including downloading it and making a printable monthly planner. You can find our monthly planner template in our Template Library.

Do you or your team feel overburdened by tasks? Having trouble focusing on particular problems?

They also rely on the method to assess whether a given solution is likely to solve the problem at hand.
