Using SkillShare to Learn How to Make a Digital Planner


One of the things I really wanted to learn how to do this year with my iPad was to create a digital planner. I am very much a paper and pen kind of person, but I am trying to minimize the amount of paper items that I utilize.

I follow K Digital Studio on YouTube and Kirstin does an amazing job providing step by step instructions switching to digital note-taking. I actually watched her class on how to make a digital planner on SkillShare, which you can try for 30 days free through my referral link here.

She teaches you how to build a digital planner using Keynote on both the iPad and MacBook. It was a pretty easy process overall with the most time-consuming piece of linking the slides back to the month and week calendars.

I created a blank cover for my planner and linked monthly calendars with the tabs on the sides. For example, here is my August 2021 monthly view of the calendar.

In Kirstin’s class, she teaches you how to make an undated planner, but I went ahead and dated mine for July 2021 – June 2022 in my own handwriting. Here are my daily pages:

I then exported the Keynote file to PDF and downloaded it to my GoodNotes app to use for the rest of the year!

My goal is to continue using SkillShare to learn how to make other digital products that I can sell online through my website and through Etsy.

Because this is my first attempt and I’m planning to use this version myself, I am providing a FREE download of the digital planner here:

Let me know what you think about it!
