If you are already using an older calendar file with WhizFolders, you can straightaway download the new year 2018 calendar file from the link given at the end.

The hyperlinking features of WhizFolders can be put to good use in a calendar (or events) file where in addition to quickly going to a date’s page, you can go forward, backward by days, weeks, months. You can download such a calendar file for the current year by a download link at the end of this article.

Many uses of this file: You can use this WhizFolder file as a calendar, diary, journal, events, tasks or for any free format note taking related to dates. Further, you can use it with any WhizFolders edition (even the trial). You can feel the power of WhizFolders hyperlinks and free format concept when you start using it. Please look at the tips in the “How to use” topic at the top of the file.

Here is an example of how a calendar file works:

Download: You can download the 2018 year file from the following link. Read the important note on downloading below.


Important note on downloading: Sometimes, the browser downloads and marks the file read only in the file system. In that case, WhizFolders opens it read-only and you can not modify the file. If you see a read-only label in WhizFolders after opening this file, please use Windows Explorer to see the right-click properties of this file and switch off the “read only” flag. Then open the file in WhizFolders again.

The idea for events file originally came from Steve Jarjoura who contributed the event files for earlier years. I am now generating the event file from a small utility that I made up. I have used some new features like icons and Popup links in the new file.

The initial research for any new adwords campaign can be quite complex. When it comes to Adword Tools, Google has Keyword Planner and Adwords Editor. They are OK but have no features for keeping notes on various activities. Adwords Editor does have a Comment panel now but that does not really help. I use WhizFolders to manage the complexity of keeping notes on Adwords. I wrote an article about it on my Helping Things Blog This is yet another use of WhizFolders as a tool for managing complex information. You can read the article at the following link:
