Microsoft Visio - Creating Calendars You can create calendars in Visio to help you better organize and distribute information. To create a calendar, go to the New menu in the File tab and click on Templates, then on Schedule. In the Schedule category, click Multi-week task calendar, and then click Create to create the calendar workspace. Depending on your version of Visio, you might just notice the template as a timeline. You will see that a default calendar has been created. You can, however, create your own calendar by dragging the Month shape onto an empty canvas. This opens the Configure dialog box, where you can specify the calendar month. The days of the month are automatically filled in and weekends are differentiated from the days of the month.a week.
