Enable to create links between pages
As the contents in the notebook keeps increasing over a period of time, I would like to have a link or connector to a previous page or a different book within the app to quickly navigate to the desired content instead if flipping through the pages.
This would be a very welcome addition. Great request!

Am here to add my voice to this idea

C'mon... I'm sure this has some major implications on core elements or you would have already done it... but this would be a gamechanger for users.

Pleeaaasse 🥺 I’d love to link handwritten text to other GoodNotes documents and to specific pages, maybe even words or areas which will be highlighted like when using search 😍 this way I could for example link words to custom explanations, like for language learning 🥳

I am using goodnotes now for quite some time on my iPad for creating meeting notes, prepare talks and sketchnotes from conference talks. It is working out very well so far. What I am missing out is the ability to connect information from different programs like goodnotes and text from [Drafts](https://getdrafts.com/) or [iThoughts](https://www.toketaware.com/ithoughts-new-home/) mindmaps.
The ability to create links between pages and into notebooks would vastly improve my workflow.
I am using application uri schema like evernote://, https:// or e.g. drafts5://open?uuid=DE863D20-88AD-46F2-B988-8C327DE7335F to link different resources from different applications. Especially the support of the program [hook](https://hookproductivity.com/) would be an amazing time saver while connecting my research papers, ideas and notes in goodnotes. For me this approach is working well on iOS and macOS.
Please consider the integration. To do so I have added a few links from the Hook website to start with.

Thanks for your great app and the constant improvements.

This. Would. Be. So. Much. Better!!!
Just realised this idea was posted in 2018, yet 3 years have past and this function is still not updated in the latest version.. we can only use the hyperlink function with imported PDFs which is very inconvenient as we still need to create a PDF document on laptop first, it would be great if we could just create the hyperlinks in goodnotes itself
Adding on to this, there should be a link tree that has connections to other documents based on the word or topic. Users should be allowed to choose which links can be created or not. Check out Obsidian's note-taking software where people can link and make connections with their notes.

Yes please add the ability to add hyperlinks to other pages, folders, different notebooks, etc.
As someone with ADHD it would be EXTREMELY helpful for keeping track of the growing number of notebooks and pages!
Without this feature it makes it hard to want to continuously use the app because it isn’t as organized as I need it to be.

I am a dyslexic college student and I use goodnotes for everything in all of my classes! It is very helpful. I believe this feature really needs to be added though because so many of the things I am learning are online in various places (especially not that most classes are being fully taught online. it would also be helpful to have the ability to link to other pages to connect key words to a vocab list, etc.
I'd love to link a note to a page or a section of another page. Even small placable hyperlinks would suffice. GoodNotes would replace a bunch of other programs in my life in that case.

This absolutely needs to be added. It is a fantastic idea and would make Goodnotes a much more effective learning tool.
This would be huge and be able to truly be a digital bullet journal!! this would be a great addition and add an entirely new customer base!
Just got this today so I could use it for my teacher planner. Can't link my lesson plans or my classroom documents. So disappointed. Wasted $13 on the app and $34 on an awesome planner template...only to find out it is basically useless now I can't link in other documents...or even to other pages. Such a basic function to not have. Will probably have to go back to using OneNote.
waste of money on this application without this feature. I had to call my credit card company to block the transaction to get my money back.

Come on guys, we need this!! Please? Pretty please?

I appreciate the topics on this site, it's quite informative.
This is a basic function. And disappointing after spending $13 on app
It's been two years! Come on!

It is needed. Would be great to create links to other pages in the same document, as well as hyperlinks to other sites or apps.
