Importing OneNote planners: a step-by-step guide
Setting up digital planners can take a little time but I provide a detailed step-by-step guide on importing a OneNote planner to make it as simple as possible. These instructions are focused on the OneNote templates available here at HappyDownloads and cover importing on iPad and Surface Pro. Check out the videos below.
Step 1: Go to the OneDrive folder link provided by us
Step 2: Make sure you are logged in to OneDrive
Step 3: Tap the OneNote template you wish to use
Tap the digital planner you wish to use. This will open OneNote online which will “register” the planner with OneNote. Close the page after it loads.
Step 4: Add OneNote notebook to your device
Step 5: Create a new notebook and copy tabs from our digital planner template
Create a new notebook:
Delete the default page of the new notebook:
Copy all tabs over from the read-only template to your new notebook. iPad and PCs are usually able to copy multiple tabs at once. On some devices, such as the Surface Pro, you will need to copy each section individually:
Your OneNote app may take some time before updating and may not look like it is progressing. Please leave your device for a few minutes and it will then update.
Wait at least 15 minutes before closing the read-only notebook. Otherwise, it may not copy all tabs correctly.
The digital planner files are now imported into OneNote and should be ready to use!
If you repeat steps 4 to 6 on other devices, your planner will be available across different devices.
If you have had any issues with the OneNote templates and it is not importing correctly, please send us a message either on Etsy or by email. We will help you get it working! Please let us know where you are not able to carry out the above steps and what device and OneNote app you are using. I hope you found our guide on importing a OneNote planner useful!
