2018 UPstudio Planner - Monthly Layout Feedback April 27, 2017 05:00 3 Comments

We really appreciate you all taking the time to share your thoughts and vote on your favorite potential UPstudio Planner cover color options.

We compiled the votes from the poll and all of our social media platforms:

  • First Place: Gray
  • Second Place: Red (only a few votes shy of first)
  • A Close Third: Satchel
  • A Far Last: Black

Our thoughts on the results:

  1. They affirm that we made the right decision to go with gray for 2017!
  2. We were hesitant to put black in our top four because we are fearful of a few things on that front, but we wanted it there to see how men specifically felt about black, the ultimate neutral color. We are happy to see it came in dead last.
  3. We thought red would be a run away, but we are happy to see satchel could hang in the crowd.

We are still working through the cost implications of offering two colors for 2018 but we are very hopeful this is an area we can grow this year. We will keep you all posted on the progress. 

In regards to the layout of the 2018 UPstudio Planner we are currently only entertaining what we view as one large modification. We have had some users reach out to us specifically requesting the month layouts to start on Monday to be consistent with the week layouts.

This would affect the month layouts that proceed the week layouts and it would also affect all of the mini month layouts found on various pages including the goal sheet, month layout, and weekly layout. 

We would love to hear your opinion. We've included a sample of our current month layout along side an altered layout below to help you visualize what we are considering.

Do you feel strongly one way or the other? Are you neutral on the topic? How much do you utilize the month layout? Would you like that the months now align with the weekly layout?
