Digital Planning FAQs
WHAT IS DIGITAL PLANNING?
Essentially digital planning is just uploading a PDF (aka the planner) to a note taking app and writing over it on your iPad with the Apple Pencil. So once you purchase and download a planner you will then upload it to a note taking app (I use Goodnotes5). Then you get started with planning and writing over it!
WHICH DIGITAL NOTE TAKING APP SHOULD I USE?
We recommend either Goodnotes5 or Notability. We use Goodnotes5 in all our videos and content. IMPORTANT NOTE: PDFs are NOT compatible with Procreate.
HOW DO I ADD PAGES?
This is an "add-as-you-go" planner! This means you can add as your use your pages so that you never have tons of blank planner spreads to filter through. It also keeps the file size down which adds to the functionality of the planner so you can have a better experience.
We recommend only adding pages and not deleting (as deleting pages can affect the integrity of the hyperlinked tabs). Once you are in your note-taking app of choice you can add pages (video instruction included) and move them around your planner by pressing and holding them down in the overview page (varies on note taking app, we recommend watching tutorials on your chosen app).
IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MANY PAGES I CAN ADD?
Nope! You can add ad many as your iPad storage will allow you.
HOW TO I USE THE HYPERLINKED TABS?
You must be in READ-ONLY mode on your note taking app to use the hyperlinks. You can find out how to do this in the video tutorial included or a tutorial from the app you have chosen to use.
MY TABS AREN’T LINKED CORRECTLY AFTER EDITING PAGES. WHAT CAN I DO?
Unfortunately once the planners are edited or pages are added/deleted I can no longer assist on the functionality since it is different for everyone. However, I recommend re-downloading your planner from your Etsy profile to start fresh.
CAN I USE THIS ANYTIME?
Yep! Since these are undated, you can pick it up and use it anytime of year.
IS THIS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL IPADS?
These planners will work with any iPad that is compatible with a noteaking app (Goodnotes is my favorite) and an Apple pencil if you choose to write on your planner. If your iPad is compatible with those, you are good to go!
IS THIS COMPATIBLE WITH NON-IPADS?
Unfortunately, we only have experience using iPads with these products. Therefore, we don't feel comfortable saying yes or no. We recommend downloading a free planner from the website and you can test it out to see if these work on your specific device before purchasing. You can always print these sheets or use them on a mac or iphone as well.
