Planner Highlights At A GlanceThe B6 Medium Weeks is a brand new design concept from Take A Note for 2024! This version features a layout and page design that is simpler, lighter, and more flexible.
Weekly Plan (Two pages per Week)
The TAN comes with yearly, monthly, weekly and daily views.
In the B6 planner, most of the spreads consist of a two-page-per-week layout. Monday to Wednesday are displayed on the left page, and Thursday to Sunday are on the right page, so when you have your planner laid open before you, you can view your entire week across the open book. Rather than a vertical timeline, days are divided into morning, mid-day and evening "zones", plus plenty of blank gridded space below, which provides more flexibility when planning.
Each day also shows the phases of the moon.
Calendar and Yearly Gantt Chart
The first few pages in the TAN planner comprise of an annual calendar and yearly Gantt chart. The annual view spans September 2023 to April 2025, so it is useable from the moment you receive your planner. The 2024 B6 features a dual-color design to distinguish between working days and holidays.
The horizontal Yearly Gantt chart (Jan - Dec 2024) allows users to note important events (holidays, birthdays, etc.) or can be used for habit tracking. The B6 design features a newly designed habit tracking table with increased writing space!
Vertical Gantt Chart Yearly Plan
The vertical yearly plan gives you an overall view of the year. The vertical planner can be helpful for planning long-term projects, as well as a habit tracking table. Extra spacing are added at the bottom of this section to provide more space for notes.
Take A Note's monthly view comes with ample grid space surrounding the monthly calendar. These can be divided into different sections for different months such as monthly tasks and goals. The monthly view spans December 2023 to March 2025.
