How to use digital planners and notebooks

Congrats on your new digital planner or notebook! This post will help you on how to use digital planners and notebooks. My products are designed to help you organize your theocratic and personal life. The use of my products requires some experience in Goodnotes (or similar apps) and digital note-taking in general. If you are new to digital planning, you can try out this new and exciting way using my freebies!

Ok, so let’s start with introducing your new notebook or planner! My digital products are primarily designed to use them in Goodnotes. It is an amazing app that I have been using for many years now. It is not a free app but in my opinion it payed out several times already. I am using Goodnotes to study, organize my life, write down my ideas, and plan my business. If you are not ready to invest in an app right now, there are some free alternatives, although they might not offer all the required features to use my digital products.

Save your planner or notebook

Ok, so you have just bought my planner and need a way to save it on your mobile device. Usually, you will get an email from Etsy right after your purchase with details on how to download the product. If you didn’t get an email, please check your spam folder. If there is no email even in the spam folder, you can access the file on your Etsy profile directly under Purchases and Reviews.

Now download the file(s) to your cloud (iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, …). Some files are ZIP files and usually, you can very easily open them by clicking on them.

Import to Goodnotes

To open the entire PDF notebook or planner in GoodNotes just tap the + icon in the upper left corner and import the PDF notebook.

If you want to use the single PDF pages as templates open the template library from Options in the lower right corner. Tap the + icon to create a new template folder. In this folder tap Edit and then again the + icon. Select the source where you saved the template files (i.e. Dropbox) and access the Single PDF Pages folder. After importing, tap Save. You can also adjust line height if required. This way the return feature in the Zoom window will work just fine.

This works similarly in other note-taking apps.
