on (one's) slate
1. Still to come; on one's future schedule. This victory should give a much-needed boost to the team's morale, as they have three more hugely important and difficult games on their slate. With two shows already on their slate, both set to debut this fall, the tech company's first foray into television programming is off to a good start so far.
2. old-fashioned On one's line of credit (as opposed to being paid for upfront). A slate was formerly a stone tablet on which a customer's bill was kept tallied, to be wiped clean once the debt was paid off. Primarily heard in UK. Go around to Tom Buchanan's shop and get these fixings for supper. Tell him to just put it on my slate.
