GoodNotes App is perfect for taking notes and digital planning.
There are so many different ways to use Digital Planners. Some people prefer one large Digital Planner that they use for all parts of their lives. Others prefer to have separate Digital Planners for things like family life, work, and even special ones like a Goal Planner.
One simple way to have individual planners is if you have a digital notebook or undated planner, then you can create copies of these items and re-use them for different subjects or planning purposes.
When I re-use an existing document I like to have a different cover for each Digital Planner to it so I can easily spot the notebook I want in my library rather than scrolling through and tapping on documents to check which one I need.
Digital Planning is all about being more productive and efficient.
By making a little effort to set up your Digital Planners like this you will find that you will save yourself time…and of course, they will look amazing too!
