If you're new to digital planning or need a refresher, this is the perfect place to start.
What is a digital planner?
It’s a planner for your iPad or tablet! A digital planner is just like a paper planner but instead of paper, it is a PDF file (which stands for portable document format).
In other words? A digital planner is simply a more portable version of a paper planner. They are coded with these things called hyperlinks, which allow you to tap the tabs, buttons, text, etc., to jump between the pages of the planner.
The planners can then be imported into apps that allow you to ‘mark up’ PDF files. You’re probably already familiar with Adobe Reader (like on your computer), but you can import PDFs into apps like GoodNotes, Notability, Noteshelf, and others.
What do I need to get started?
In addition to your iPad/tablet, it is very beneficial to have an Apple Pencil/stylus (possibly a keyboard, if you prefer to type) and basic knowledge of your preferred note-taking app (whether it is GoodNotes, Notability, etc).
How do I use the hyperlinks in my planner?
Most apps have a reading mode that you must enter to click the links. Alternatively, you can long-press and click "Open Link" in GoodNotes.

Can I use an Android tablet for digital planning?

Will my digital planner sync to automated calendar apps?

My hyperlinks are not working. What do I do?
First, make sure you are in reading mode or alternatively, long-press and click "Open Link" to navigate your digital planner. If you are in reading mode, digital planner hyperlinks will break if you delete pages.
Thus, it is recommended to never delete pages. You will need to recover the pages from the trash bin or redownload & import a fresh copy of the planner.
I'm getting an 'unsupported file type' error
Please be sure that you are only importing compatible file types for the app you are using. In general, zip files are incompatible with note-taking apps and will need to be unzipped prior to importing your files.
I'm getting a 'POSIX' error when downloading my files
A POSIX error is generated by Apple when there is not a strong enough Internet connection to unzip files. Please use a stronger Internet connection or mobile hotspot to unzip your files.
I'm experiencing lags, glitches, bugs, and more
Unfortunately, this is due to bugs or glitches related to the app you are using. Digital planners are simply documents, so they won't experience glitches, non-loading pages, etc.
You can view a full list of confirmed issues with GoodNotes here.
It is recommended to reach out to the app developers directly with these issues, and as unfortunately, KDigitalStudio cannot provide app support.
