Artful Agenda: The Beginners Guide to Digital Planning

Digital Planning

There are endless possibilities for increasing your productivity and staying inspired when you go digital with Artful Agenda. Understanding all the features available can help you make the most of it!

What Is Digital Planning?

Digital planning is an alternative to traditional planning that uses a digital version of a planner or agenda rather than a paper version. If you’ve ever used a calendar app on your phone to stay organized, Google Calendar to schedule a virtual happy hour, or Outlook Calendar for work video conference calls, you’ve already used a digital planner.

Why Should You Make the Switch to Digital Planning?

Digital planning makes your life easier!

For many people, digital planning is more efficient than paper planning. You have everything you need in the palm of your hand. Using an app that you can access from anywhere you have an internet connection provides the perfect combination of convenience and organization.

Digital planners like Artful Agenda give you the flexibility that you cannot find with paper planners. You can change events, appointments, and tasks without worrying about needing an eraser or some whiteout. When you use Artful Agenda, you can also change your planner’s aesthetic as often as you would like!

With digital planners, you also have the ability to share your calendar with others. You can make it simpler to do things like keep your significant other updated on family events, let your coworkers know when you’re unavailable, or manage employee schedules.

Sync Your Calendars 

If you are already using a digital planner or calendar for work or your personal life, you will not have to worry about starting over or migrating all of your content over to Artful Agenda. Our digital planner syncs with Google, Apple, and Outlook. All you have to do is sign into the Artful Agenda app to access your current calendar. 

You can even use multiple Google, Apple, and Outlook accounts by sharing additional calendars with the account you sync to Artful Agenda. You can also create multiple calendars within one account so you can easily organize your calendar.

Create Your Aesthetic

Whether you prefer neutrals or want a colorful planner, Artful Agenda allows you to make your digital planning aesthetic whatever you would like it to be!

With Artful Agenda, you have the option to choose from more than 30 free cover options. Plus, we have some available for purchase. Unlike a paper planner, you can confidently pick a cover without worrying about having to stick with it if you decide you would like another one instead. Plus, our covers never sell out!

If you like to coordinate the colors in your planner with the cover, you can use color hex codes to match the events in your Artful Agenda to your chosen cover. There are colors preprogrammed into the app that you can use or create your own color combinations. If you want to color-code your Artful Agenda based on different categories, you can also do that.

Artful Agenda also comes with hundreds of free digital planning stickers, and new sticker packs are released often. Stickers are a great way to express your creativity, mark milestones, and highlight important activities. There are sticker packs available for a variety of events, appointments, seasons, and celebrations.

Utilize the Productivity Features 

Be more productive and organized with digital planning. With Artful Agenda, you can:

Organize your goals

The app has designated sections for Monthly and Weekly Goals as well as customizable daily task areas. Plus, our List tab is a great place to keep track of all of your goals and assign them to daily to-do lists.

Plan your meals ahead of time

Artful Agenda has a Meal Plan section on both the Week view and Day view of the app. When you input your meal information into one of the views, it will automatically populate into the other view, saving you time!

Get push notification reminders

The ability to set notifications is a huge benefit of using a digital planner like Artful Agenda. Setting push notifications will help make sure you do not miss meetings and appointments and can help keep you on schedule on busy days.

Set repeating tasks

In Artful Agenda, you can set tasks to reoccur daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly. This capability comes in handy for things like paying your bills or replacing your toothbrush.

Rollover incomplete tasks

Make sure you do not forget to take care of anything on your to-do list by setting unfinished tasks to automatically roll over to the next day until they are checked off.

    I am still a newbie, but I am enjoying the planner. I have added past events to the planner. Dating back to 2019. It is good to find an app to hold almost everything. I am trying to find a way to place my contacts into the planner.

    I’m not sure what is going on but it won’t let me change my write permission and I can’t add anything to the calendar

      Hi Courtney! Yes, you can add multiple lists. If you head over to the lists tab, select the middle icon that looks like a piece of paper. If you hover over that, it will say “new.” To look at all of your lists, go to the title of your list and click the downward arrow to reveal all of your lists.

    Do you have space designated for notes?

      Hi Carolina! If you go under the day view, you can rename all of these boxes and create one you can use for notes. For example, the large rectangular box under water intake would be a great place to insert some notes for yourself. Here is a post explaining more about renaming the title of your lists.
