M-x org-agenda a v y allows me to view my agenda for the current year. Is it possible to view my agenda for next year? More generally, is it possible to view my agenda for a specific year or for a specified block of time?
The year (as well as day, month, week etc.) can take a prefix argument specifying the period you want to view. To view a specific year (e.g. 2017) pass the year using
C-u while in the agenda:
C-u 2017 v y.
This works by calling the function
(org-agenda-year-view &optional YEAR)
Switch to yearly view for agenda. With argument YEAR, switch to that year. Years ranging from 70 years ago to 30 years in the future can also be written as 2-digit years.
If you want to view this frequently you can save it as a custom agenda command. The period shown is controlled by
org-agneda-span (how much to show) and
org-agenda-start-day (when to start). For example:
(add-to-list 'org-agenda-custom-commands '("y" "2017 agenda" agenda "" ((org-agenda-span 'year) (org-agenda-start-day "2017-01-01") )))
