I don't like puppy pads, personally, because my eldest was trained on them before he came to us and took a LONG time to understand that not everything fabric-like and absorbent on the floor was for peeing on. Rugs, bath mats, a shirt dropped on the way to the laundry... it was frustrating. If you do go the route of having an indoor potty area, I'd suggest the turf/litter option - something with a substrate that either mimics where she's peeing outside, or at the very least something completely different than any other surface inside the house so it's easier for her to differentiate between her potty area and the rest of the indoors.

Keeping notes about her potty behavior can help too, since it's much easier to identify patterns like "she has more accidents on rainy days" (an issue my youngest had) and then be better prepared to manage her in those circumstances.
