Find a Google Docs Calendar Template

Creating a calendar in Google Docs is tedious if you plan to start from scratch. A much better alternative is to import a premade calendar template directly into the document. The first step is to locate a calendar template. Google doesn’t provide any for Docs (they do for Google Sheets), but many other sites do. We’ll use CalendarLabs.com.

Consider Google Sheets Calendars

Google Docs is excellent for document-style editing. That’s its purpose, and that’s what it excels at. But for structured data like a calendar, you might prefer Google Sheets.

Does your calendar need a space to write something? As you saw above with Docs, creating events is extremely easy because you’re actually editing a table cell. But if you need to highlight particular days out of the month or print something off, you can glance at it to know what day of the week it is; the calendar templates in Sheets are enough.
