Digital Download: 365-day Emergent Task Planner

Emergent Task Planner Journal Version UPDATE! Both A4 and US Letter versions now available. Includes “Read Me” file and bonus blank 2013 page.

After battling the uncertainty of using XML with InDesign for weeks, I finally got it to import something predictably, which allows me to now offer this: a digital download version of the Emergent Task Planner PDF, with every single day of 2013 dated. Not only that, but each of those 365 days has text fields so you can pre-enter your tasks (and a memo) with Adobe Acrobat Reader (free). Federal holidays and the Groundhog Day Resolutions days are annotated as well.

The New DesignIf you use and enjoy the free version of the Emergent Task Planner and want just a little extra oomph, you probably will like this version as it is a new ETP design created just for this journal. I like it a lot, as it fixes a lot of subtle spacing issues. You can see how it looks by clicking the image on the right; it will expand into a larger image.

I’m selling the 365-page PDF (which includes an instruction sheet plus a bonus blank single-page design) for US $7.00 through GumRoad, a nifty digital download service that seems pretty cool. I’ll be moving a lot of my semi-custom design work to this service because it is NOT PayPal.

My ultimate plan is to create a neat “Farmer’s Almanac” out of this planner, so I’m open to suggestions on the kind of thing you’d like to see to make it super awesome. Suggestions for other form factors are welcome also; with the new XML workflow, I am finally able to produce data-driven multi-page forms accurately without going blind. Every purchaser of this download will get access to improvements made during 2013 through their download link.


You can check out the download store clicking the buttons below (window will open if you are browsing my site directly):

If that doesn’t work, try these links for US Letter or A4 Size. The purchase link should accept credit cards internationally…let me know if it doesn’t!

As always, thank you for your support! Again, I am open to suggestions for variations. Unfortunately, I can’t offer printed versions at this moment, but you could always take your download to your local print shop and have it done there.
