    For Example: As an influencer, I love creating content themes for my audience to enjoy throughout the week. ‘Notes’ makes it easy for me to use a color for specific themes, and drop in anything that I want to be mindful of or remember when promoting that specific content. In the example above, I created a Friday Favorites Series Note for a post that I want to go live every Friday on Instagram. I added in my title: Friday Favorites Series, a note description, and chose the first Friday in May to start the series along with a color code of yellow so that I can easily spot it on the social calendar. This makes it easy for me to keep track of upcoming content, and make sure I don’t forget what I need to post! 

     

    PLANOLY Pro Tip: Use the color swatch on ‘Notes’ to color-code your content and make it even easier to find a specific note!
