Digital planning and note-taking isn't difficult, but there are a couple of steps to get your planner onto your tablet.
You will need:
- A compatible tablet
- A stylus (such as the Apple Pencil)
- A planning App. Goodnotes and Noteshelf are the most popular
- Your digital notebook (look for the row of purple arrows lower down in the post)
How to import a digital notebook into Goodnotes
- After downloading the PDF file, the planner will open in the Safari browser of your iPad.

How to use the Goodnotes app
Sometimes people have trouble and aren't able to get the hyperlinked tabs to click when they use Goodnotes.
How to use hyperlinked tabs in Goodnotes
- For the tabs to work, you need to be in the Read-Only Mode in Goodnotes. You should see an icon of a pencil with a line through it.
- This mode lets you navigate through your pages easily.
- All other inputs, like the pen/stylus, are blocked when this mode is active.
How to write on your digital panner in Goodnotes
- To be able to write on your planner, you need to deselect the Read-Only Mode in Goodnotes. You should see an icon that looks like a pencil drawing a loop.
- You can use the writing tools like the pen and highlighter in this mode.
