V Planner 4.2, High School V Planner V4.2, and Homeschool Lesson Planner V4 are ready for use. Download from the Member's area.
This applies to V Planner V3 and High School V Planner.
Beginning with V Planner V3 and High School V Planner, the S-Sheets (subject sheets) have three columns where you may enter lesson plans. The columns are labled: Column One, Column Two, and Column Three. Under each lable is a blank space where you may type a heading. The heading is not picked up anywhere in the planner, it is just something that can be for your reference.
Before entering lesson plans it is important to understand how the lesson planners handle the lesson plan columns. Please view the short video below to help with gaining that understanding.
There is one point that I want you to know and this is important - The other two lesson plan columns will always "stick" to the first column. By stick I am referring to the two systems that manage lesson plans. The two systems (DS and NS) manage the lesson plans in the entire row and not the individual columns.

Keeping in mind how lesson planner formulas treat the columns, you might be able to decide if you want to use the other two lesson plan columns and how you might like to use them. One obvious way to use the columns is by attaching extras parts of work to a school day for the particular class. There are examples of this in the Beta versions of the V Planners. Another example is to use one of the other columns for teacher's notes. Read more below.
If you need a teacher planner, then decide which column to use and then always use that column for teacher's notes.
The V Planner is a spreadsheet file in xls and xlsx format. To use the file, you must have Microsoft Excel on your computer. The V Planner is available from YoungMinds web site. YoungMinds is online via a subscription and on Donna Young's Site-CD.
