How To Make A Planner With GoodNotes for Free

Thinking of how to make a free digital planner using GoodNotes and make hyperlinks in it.

I'll tell you what is possible and what is not.  We'll need Goodnotes 5 and patience. Begin

1. Create a quick note

Let's summarize the results of creating a digital planner in goodnotes

Of course, Bookmarking is not a substitute for full-fledged hyperlinks for navigating dates between the planner pages. Building complete links in a digital planner for goodness is a very time-consuming process. You can make a simple weekly planner interactive for a day or less, and a complex daily planner can take a whole week of work from you if you are a beginner. 

 If you value your time, look at my dated digital planners with hyperlinks for goodness, notability, and other iPad note-taking apps.
