Create Brilliant Weekly Schedules with Canva

Create an eye-catching weekly schedule and view your week at a glance using Canva’s free online templates.


Remember important appointments with a weekly schedule

A week is an entire seven days of opportunities to be productive that you wouldn’t want to waste. Make sure you plan your week in advance and stay on top of your weekly activities with a custom weekly planner that’s both eye-catching and conveniently shareable with a team.

Your team is more likely to look at and remember an eye-catching weekly schedule than a boring list. Coming up with a great design need not be time consuming either. Browse through our collection of brilliant design templates, then start customizing as much or as little as you want. Download your new design for printing or share it to your colleagues straight from Canva.

Create a Weekly Schedule in 5 simple steps

  1. Create a new Canva account to get started on your own weekly schedule designs.
  2. Choose from our library of beautifully designed templates.
  3. Upload your own photos or choose from over 1 million stock images.
  4. Fix your images, add stunning filters and edit text.
  5. Save and share.

Utilize guidelines or grid lines to organize your schedule

Weekly schedules are as much about structure as they can be about visual appeal. Add grids to yours, whether image or type-heavy, and you’ll have a happy mix of both. Lines and grids are great for layouts that use interesting typography, helping them appear neater, more organized and enhancing their readability. Grids are also one of the more flexible tools in Canva. You can fill them with an image, color, or text.

Use Canva’s intuitive editor to fully customize your design

If you don’t like your text font, just highlight the text and choose from over 130 fonts. Change the color, the font size or make text bold with a few clicks. Nothing is hidden on Canva. It’s designed to be intuitive and easy even for beginners.

If one page isn’t enough for your weekly schedule, start a new page and reuse the text or other elements you’ve created. Simply click “Add a new page” and make a copy of the text and graphics you want to use. Drag the copy to the new page and you’re done.

Share and collaborate with a team

The sharing tool makes it easy for you to share and collaborate with others. Add as many email addresses as you like and invite family or colleagues to edit the schedule. Sharing is a great way to allow others to view your weekly schedule online, too. You can choose “view” and others will be able to see the weekly schedule online, but not edit.


Can I edit my weekly schedule design after I’ve saved it?

You can edit and save your designs as many times as you like. Every time you create a new design, such as a weekly schedule, it will appear in the “My Designs” section of your Canva homepage. You can also access all of your designs on your iPhone, iPad or Android device by downloading our free apps from the App Store or Google Play.

You can edit your text in a variety of ways to make sure it fits your design needs. Using the text tools, you can change the font type, size, color, emphasis, alignment, spacing and transparency. You can also turn your text into a bulleted or numbered list.

Changes are applied across all text within a text box. To apply any of the above changes, select the text box you wish to edit and click on the format options found in the text tool.

Designing in Canva is free! Our library of layouts has been created by awesome designers, making it as simple as a few clicks for you to create a professional design. If you use your own images in your design, the entire process will be free.

You can also choose from Canva’s library of over 1 million images, graphics, and illustrations. Many of these images are also free, while the rest are all priced at just $1.
