I have found a code for a calendar and would like to be able to write different tasks for each day. Basically, to make the command \daytext individual for each day. I have added an example with different text every day, which is not in the code. That is the question. How do I achieve the same result using only Tikz.

    \multicolumn{2}{c}{#1} \\
    \multicolumn{2}{c}{#2\color{black}} \\[1ex]
     15:30 & \\\hline
     16:00 & \\\hline\hline
     16:30 & \\\hline
     17:00 & \\\hline\hline
     17:30 & \\\hline
     18:00 & \\\hline\hline
     18:30 & \\\hline
     19:00 & \\\hline\hline
     19:30 & \\\hline
     20:00 & \\\hline\hline
     20:30 & \\\hline
  \calendar (cal)
  [dates=2021-08-16 to 2021-08-20,day list right,day xshift=3cm,
  day text={\daytext{\%wt}{\Huge\%d-}}]%\ooalign{\Huge\%d-\cr\hidewidth\raisebox{1cm}{\%wt}\hidewidth}}]
  if (weekend) [font=\bfseries]
  if (Sunday) [red];

  • Your screenshot is uniform ... so I wonder, how it would look like, what you are trying to achieve? What would be different?

    I suggest having a look at ctan.org/pkg/schedule?lang=en . It seems to provide what you want. // Also check out the topics "Planning" and "Timetable" at CTAN.

    If so: Please share a solution with us. // The normal way to do it would be to "Ask Question" AND to checkmark "Answer your own question", lower left. // Perhaps you have to duplicate your question to do so (which is not so nice), or get some hint from more expereinced users here ;-) (Please)
