The idea for Plandisc 360 calendar originated in Denmark as a digital planning tool for schools. But soon after the launch, the demand for digital planning tools was beyond the school sector and all kinds of organizations started using the tool for their planning processes. Plandisc is the world’s first circular digital calendar, or what Scandinavia calls a ‘year-wheel’. Addressing the rising demand, the Plandisc team continues to develop the tool to meet the diverse requirements of the rising user base.
