So I tried to create a yearly digital planner in InDesign but I ran into some issues regarding pages and hyperlinks.

Here's a digital planner for reference (https://bosspersonalplanner.com/collections/digital-planners/products/digital-personal-planner).

What I basically want is a single calendar page for example August

 

 

and have each day have its own page for time tracking or whatever. Everything should be linked so clicking on a date should take me to the page with that date

Is there a way to auto-generate these pages so I don't have to copy and paste each page and manually adjust the date and have it all linked together? Can't really find any tutorials on these topics

I think you'd have to look to some kind of scripting, though not sure even possible. Several approaches for doing manually via brute force. Since your pages are fixed, each date could link to a specific page (e.g. Aug 1 link to page 1, assuming the individual pages follow the month calendar). You could section each month so the 1st always links to page 1 of that section.
