Weekly GridTemplates usually feature a week over 2 pages, laid out either in columnar or paragraph style.

 

The main points to bear in mind are :

 

Choose a DayValue for tokens representing the current day. This will be used to determine current and non-current MiniCalendars. Usually one chooses the DayValue 4, because it is the exact middle of the week, but any value will do as long as you are consistent.

 

If you wish to be able to split this grid, you should probably use DayValue Marker Tokens. These tokens become important in weekly grids where there are many tokens, on both pages, which refer to the week as a whole, and may sabotage Q++'s guess as to which days are on which pages.
