Septanote academic year planner discontinued

Post Comment

Unfortunately, the Septanote academic year planner is being discontinued due to low sales and will not be produced for 2018-2019.

I was especially disappointed about this news, because I am a Septanote user myself. In fact the Septanote was my first Quo Vadis planner back in the day, and is still one of my long-time favorites.

If you are a Septanote user, you have a few options:

You can do what I did and switch to the Trinote weekly planner, which is the exact same size and format as the Septanote but is January-December. The 2018 Trinote planners are still available, you can see a list of online retailers who sell them here.

Or if you need an academic year planner, the Academic Minister has a very similar weekly format, with the additional advantage of also having monthly planning pages. The 2018-2019 Academic Minister planners will be available to buy late spring.

Another option is our new academic year planner that will have weekly and monthly pages and is designed to help you set, track, and evaluate your goals. I can’t tell you any more about it yet, but I’ll have loads of details about this new planner soon!

UPDATE: Great news for Septanote users! will continue to carry the Septanote academic year planners. Of course this means people outside the UK will pay international shipping rates, but it may be worth it for those who really want their Septanote and/ or don’t want to waste money experimenting with other planners to try to find something else.

You can contact Quo Vadis Diaries UK directly to ask for an estimate on the shipping price to your location. You can use or another similar currency converter to convert from British Pounds to your currency.

  1. I’ve just come to the end of my 2019/2020 Septanote (26th July) and am disappointed to find the replacement Trinote diary doesn’t start until 24th August. I have four weeks with no diary whereas normally they would overlap slightly. I’ve been using the Septanote for many years, so feel rather disappointed.

    • Hi Alison, as a long-time Septanote user myself, I hear you. One alternative: Quo Vadis UK has a planner that is very similar to the Septanote called the Planning SD. It is the same size as the Septanote so it would fit in the same refillable covers. It runs from September through to the following December. They ship worldwide. Here is the link if it is something you might be interested in: I hope this helps!

      • Also they have a link with printable pages to fill the gap between when the Septanote ends in July to when the Planning SD starts at the end of August.

  2. For the love of God, please bring back Septanote!!! It fills all my journal needs like no other, and I cannot possibly accept any less. Shipping from the UK is wicked inconvenient. Plus, the diary has UK geography and holidays. What will it take to bring Septanote back???

    • I hear you. I was a long-time Septanote user and was very sad when it was discontinued from the US lineup. I don’t have a 2019-2020 Septanote, but last year’s had holidays for the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand like it always has, so I’m assuming this year’s will too.

  3. There are elements of Septanote which were invaluable for planning my scholastic schedules and preparing future sessions.
    One being the anno-planning at beginning AND end of the planner.
    Also, a lot happens on a Sunday and to have the narrow bar at the base of the page makes it awkward to enter the data/info.
    I really miss your SEPTANOTE! Using Academic Minister instead but not satisfied.
    (It seemed it was still being produce for U.K. market for this past 2018-2019. Could ask a friend there to purchase and ship to me, if so).

    • I too was very sad when the Septanote was discontinued from the US lineup. I was a longtime user, but unfortunately it came down to lack of sales of this particular product. The Septanote is still available from the UK lineup and is available for international shipping from You can contact them to ask for a shipping estimate to your location. The 2019-2020 Septanote planners page is here: I hope this helps!

  4. Hi! When will you be announcing this new academic planner? I love the Septanote and have used it for years; I’m really sad to hear this news, but interested in details about the new one.

  5. I’m sad to see the Septanote go. I’m a fan of the format and love the academic year cycle for my planners. While I’m a vocal advocate of my beloved Principal, you caught my interest with hints of a new planner… with monthly pages too?!

    • Yep! Weekly pages, months on two pages, and pages for goals setting, tracking and evaluation. More info coming soon! 😀
