Library Plans can also be used to add another layer of information inside a plan, known as Plan-in-Plan. The Library plan can be created as one entire piece of content that, when a user taps the icon on their device, will open a new layer of event icons to select from. You can have an infinite number of Plan-in-Plan layers.
