      Weekend date spaces could be better utilised

      I really love this diary although I find the Saturday and Sunday columns not useful as none of us in our sector work weekends and this space could be a great spot for observations as there is not enough space in the observations to list enough links to documentation. Alternatively make the spaces bigger or add another column as we fill them every day. Development areas could also be incorporated into the columns?

      Hi Rachel, thank you for your review. The 7-Day Diary is designed for Family Day Care services who operate over the 7 Days. We have a 5 Day Monday-Friday Diary for services operating only 5 days which includes larger boxes. For next year, we have combined the two which will allow those requiring weekends to use it in this way and for those who do not to have extra space for other documentation. Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.
