Normally, you might be using other software to keep track of your to-do lists for your blog, but personally, I prefer to keep everything in one spot because I don’t like going back and forth between applications.
Having the option to add WordPress notes to your dashboard can be an effective way to keep track of your notes and your blog in one place. If you like using sticky notes, then you’re going to love this tutorial. It integrates a sticky note-like feature into WordPress!
I’m currently using this feature to keep track of the topics I want to cover on this blog.
How to add WordPress notes to your dashboard
Download the plugin below and install it. If you’re unsure how to install a plugin, please read our article on how to install WordPress plugins.
Plugin | WP Dashboard Notes
Once you install and activate this plugin, you can go back to your dashboard.
You’ll notice a new button at the top-right corner labeled “+ Add note.” Use this button from now on to create notes that will stay on your dashboard!
What an easy way to organize, right?
Some features the plugin includes:
Visibility – This determines who can see the note, whether it’s just you or all of the users. It’s great if you want to keep your notes private!
Color – Just like how sticky notes are colorful, you can customize the color WordPress notes too!
Convert to regular note – convert your note from list format to regular text format if you don’t want a to-do list.
Off the top of my head, I can think of many effective uses for this plugin:
- keep track of posts you want to write
- list things you want to improve on your blog
- set goals for yourself
- record other to-dos for your blog
