Google Slides has grown beyond its original purpose as a presentation tool and has become a versatile platform for creating various types of digital content. One such creative use of Google Slides is making a digital planner, which is a wonderful tool for those of us who are always on the go and need to keep our schedules organized. Today, we’ll walk you through how to create your own digital planner in Google Slides.
Step 1: Create a New Google Slides Document
First, you need to create a new Google Slides document. You can do this by going to Google Drive, clicking on the “+ New” button, and then selecting “Google Slides”.
Step 2: Set Up Your Slide Size
The next step is setting up your slide size. A common digital planner size is 8.5 x 11 inches which mimics the size of a standard piece of paper. You can set this up by going to “File” > “Page Setup” > “Custom” and entering 8.5 x 11 inches in the size fields.
Step 3: Create Your Planner Pages
Now it’s time to start creating your planner pages. You can make these pages as simple or as intricate as you’d like. For example, you might have a monthly view page, a weekly view page, and a daily view page. Don’t forget to create a cover page for your planner.
Step 4: Add Hyperlinks
To make your digital planner interactive, you can add hyperlinks to your pages. This allows you to click on a specific part of a page (like a date) and be taken to another page (like a daily view page for that date).
To add a hyperlink, select the object you want to link, then click on “Insert” > “Link”. In the box that pops up, click on “Slides in this presentation” and choose the slide you want to link to.
Step 5: Share Your Digital Planner
Once you’ve created your digital planner, you can share it with others or use it yourself. To do this, click on “File” > “Share” and choose the sharing options you prefer. You can also download your planner as a PDF if you’d like a physical copy.
And there you have it – your very own digital planner created with Google Slides! With a little creativity and some time, you can create a planner that’s perfectly tailored to your needs and preferences. Happy planning!
