How to Use Custom Digital Planners in GoodNotes: Quick Tips

1. Purchase and Download GoodNotes

Before we start it is important to note that the GoodNotes app is a premium app available in your App Store. It is a one-time purchase. Although there are free apps available you will find that they may not have the same functions and usability as GoodNotes.

GoodNotes is ONLY available for iPad. If you’re an Android user than my suggestion is Xodo PDF. 


2. Add Your Digital Planner Template To Your iPad

  • If you are using a Mac open the files and simply share via AirDrop. 

Firstly, Make sure your iPad is available to receive AirDrop files by heading to Settings-General-AirDrop.

Have the file open on your Mac (making sure any zip files are opened). Then at the top of the Mac screen go to ‘Share’.

A drop-down menu will appear. Click on ‘Send a Copy’. Then you will see the AirDrop function appear. Click to AirDrop. 

Importing Planner Files To GoodNotes

When you select your iPad you should have the option to import the planner directly into GoodNotes.

If that doesn’t come up then don’t worry. Just follow the below instructions.


  • Import your planner to GoodNotes
