A planner is a must if you want to stay sane and organized. It’s a great life management tool that enables you to keep track of your day by taking note of your appointments, events, tasks and more. Franklin Planners are a classic sample of such a powerful amenity, letting you also add your notes.
You might be fond of your planner but maybe, you’re now looking for a modern version, an app with some similar features, that you can use both on your iPhone and iPad devices. You can actually turn Daily Notes into that beloved, classic time management tool.
Here are some ways of turning Daily Notes into your very own Planner.
1. Create multiple sections.
Daily Notes has Tabs, which acts as sections, similar to a Planner. In these Tabs, you can sort and keep your notes, photos, even PDF attachments, sketches and voice recordings. Set up multiple Tabs for the different aspect of your life: Work, Personal, Projects, Workshops and more. You can even set up a Tab for your Master Tasks lists. You can also have a Tab for Addresses and Contact Information, just like a Planner.
Have trouble remembering the decision path? What your sales team said 2 weeks ago? What the issue is that needs to be solved for one of dozens of clients and products? Points you wanted to remember from our reading?
I recommend this app as a standard tool for everyone who has dialogues, meeting notes and decisions that need to be remembered and retrieved. I use it everyday, throughout the day in my management of 3 departments and keep track of progress, discussions and decisions across multiple projects.The power is in the easy capture and easy review.
Hi Daily Notes, where the hell were you all my digital life!
No, seriously, it feels this app was designed specifically for me. I was a big fan of Franklin Planners and have used them for years to organize my overly busy life to get back into focus. They are great and I still love them but come one, it is the 21st century and wanted to go digital where ever possible. Daily Notes does it perfectly for me.
Preparing for day ahead starts with a plan. Effectively managing one’s time in this fast paced world is a precious skill that only the most organised and the most productive have ever mastered.

1. Take note of your regular tasks.
It’s quite an obvious step but giving some thought on what you really do on a daily basis can be a big help in organising your schedule. So lists all the work, tasks, responsibilities that you can think of.
Open up your Daily Notes and tap on the slider arrow on the left to view your Calendar. Choose a date for your tasks and start writing your notes and even add in a title.
One of the most difficult aspects of college life is managing one’s time well. Your productivity depends on how well you keep track of time so practicing your time management skills would be vital to survive and eventually succeed in college.
