How To Use Your Digital Planner

Thanks for your interest in our digital planners. And if you bought a planner you’re on your way to falling in love with a new way to plan and organize.

The digital planner is a clickable PDF document. “Clickable” means it has embedded internal and external links to help you navigate the planner easily.

You can use the planner with any app that will read and annotate a PDF. I have an iPad Mini, so I use Good Notes.
