    Seeking advice on a calendar with more space for daily notes


    Most (if not all) calendar apps have limited space for just making notes and or events on a specific day.
    One: they usually show all hours (which is taking space), but there is no option to just show, say 08:00-17:00 only
    Two: events/remarks should be added to/on a specific time, as if it were an appointment, whereas I seek space for just remarks (simple text)
    Three: due to all hours of the day being displayed, only a few words of remarks are being displayed and one has to click on the remarks to show all.

    I have a small calendar near my phone and make some daily notes of events using all space per day.

    It is a bit like the below.

    Vainly searched for an application that offers something like this.
    (For both Windows 10 and Android, so as they can sync)

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    What about Google Calendar?

    I use it on my Android phone and my Windows 10 PC.

    Sorry for the late reply. I use that too, but the space is too limited. At least that is my experience.
    In case of a weekly overview, I see just, let's say, 4-5 words per entry and need to click on the entry to see the rest.

    When using a traditional calendar and making notes per day (see above examples), one has quick view on all.

    Probably there is no such thing. Am not interested in 24 hours. Google Calendar can not hide the hours outside the usual working hours (0800-1700). Haven't found any other app that can do that though.

    Maybe some type of Personal Organizer would work, I used to use the one put out for DayTimer's notebooks/planners but they discontinued the software some time ago. I still have the software I could put on WinXP or Win7.

    An example:
    Personal organizer - Day Organizer software (freeware - free of charge)
    Others:
    personal organizer software at DuckDuckGo

    Need to check them out. It should be available and sync between PC and Android (like Google Calendar).

    Calendar View ??
    The settings of Google calendar are very very limited. Am afraid I don't see a way to limit, at least, the hours.

    Anyway, probably there is no such type of calendar, all seem to assume you are also making appointments at 01:00...
