Digital Doodle Planner FAQ

Product Questions

What is the Digital Doodle Planner?

The Digital Doodle Planner is a digital version of the Doodle Planner, our bestselling yearly planner-colouring book-journal hybrid, and it has been completely optimized for the digital planning experience with hyperlinks to easily jump to different spreads. It also includes hundreds of bonus digital stickers to customize! There are 12 creative monthly themes and illustrations drawn by AmandaRachLee in black and white on every page for you to colour in and add a little touch of creativity to daily life. 

I'm new to digital planning. Will this planner be right for me?

Yes! The Digital Doodle Planner was made with all levels of digital planning experience in mind. Our layouts are based on physical planner spreads, so it will feel familiar to those who have used them before. For a video introduction, check out AmandaRachLee’s walkthrough video on YouTube. You will also receive a detailed set of instructions with your purchase! 

Is it similar to the Doodle Planner?

The Digital Doodle Planner has the same monthly cover, calendar, weekly layout, and tracker spread layouts as the physical Doodle Planner. The yearly overview page has been configured into a main navigation index with clickable icons to quickly get to whichever monthly spread you like!

What’s different from the physical Doodle Planner?

The digital version has been re-designed with a navigation index and clickable side tabs for easy navigation. It also includes a new daily template and 785+ customizable digital stickers, trackers, icons, and labels for complete personalization!

Where can I find blank pages to create my own digital spreads

Click the plus tab near the bottom right of the Digital Doodle Planner to access the blank notepapers and pre-made templates.

What are the themes?

The Digital Doodle Planner has the same themes as the previous year's physical Doodle Planner. This is due to the size of our small design team. We simultaneously create the artwork for the new year's physical planner while also designing the digital planner. Using the artwork from the previous year to create the digital planner allows us to complete both. This would only be an issue for customers who are switching from the physical planner to the digital planner, as this would mean they would have the same themes. Hopefully we can grow our team in the future so we can launch both at the same time! 

Why are the themes the same as last year’s Doodle Planner?

The Digital Doodle Planner takes a long time to develop and format (due to all the features, links & spreads). Using the already-completed artwork from the previous year's Doodle Planners allows us more time to develop the planner throughout the year.

When will I get the download link for my digital planner?

The download link will be sent to you in a separate email shortly after completing your purchase! No need to wait for shipping :)

Can I return my Digital Doodle Planner?

Due to the nature of digital products, no refunds or exchanges can be issued. However, if you have any issues with your digital files, please contact us at .

Can I share the Digital Doodle Planner with others?

All designs are for PERSONAL USE ONLY. It is prohibited to share, sell, alter, or replicate any of the files provided to you.


Device/App Compatibility

Is the planner compatible with Android? Is the Digital Doodle Planner compatible with all devices?

The Digital Doodle Planner is an interactive PDF file optimized to be used with Goodnotes (now available on Android!), but it will work with most note taking or PDF annotation apps on both iOS and Android devices. Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee compatibility with all devices and apps due to the wide selection available on the market.

Which app do you recommend for the Digital Doodle Planner?

The Digital Doodle Planner has been optimized for Goodnotes, as it is the most popular app for digital planning. However, it is compatible with most PDF annotation apps such as Notability and Noteshelf. Goodnotes is now available on both iOS and Android, so the majority of devices are able to use it!

Do I have to pay for GoodNotes in order to use the Digital Doodle Planner?

Unfortunately, Goodnotes has recently changed their free version to limit imports to files under 5 Mb. Due to this, the Digital Doodle Planner can no longer be used with the free version of Goodnotes at this time. However, the full version of Goodnotes can be unlocked with either a yearly subscription or one-time payment, both of which are reasonably priced. If you’re looking for free app options we suggest Notability or Noteshelf 3!

Can I use the Digital Doodle Planner on my phone? Or my computer?

The 2023 Digital Doodle Planner can be used with any pdf annotation app, but to get the full experience we recommend using a tablet with a tablet stylus/ pen!

Does the Digital Doodle Planner allow cloud syncing?

As long as the app you are using has cloud syncing capabilities, the Digital Doodle Planner can sync across multiple devices!



The files won't download to my device. What should I do?

Disable any VPN or antivirus software you have running, as this can often interfere with downloads, and then restart your device. Please also try downloading the files with a different browser. If possible, download the files to a computer then transfer them to your device.

Some weekly spreads are missing days at the end of the month. Where can I find them

As in our physical planner, the weeks at the end of one month that transition to the next month are sorted by the month that has the majority of the days in that week. In example, the 30th and 31st of October are in the first weekly spread in November!

The planner pages are taking awhile to load. What can I do to reduce lagginess?

Please make sure that both your device and app are up to date and running the latest version. The planner PDF is a relatively large file so please ensure that your device has enough memory available and close any memory-intensive programs in the background while using it. 

Individual pages with many added stickers and images may take longer to load, so test to see what is the optimal amount per page for your device in order to minimize lag as much as possible. 

If the app you are using allows cloud syncing, please wait for your Digital Doodle Planner to complete syncing before using it (this should only be an issue if you are opening it on a different device from when you were last using your planner).
