I am curious how other people track this kind of thing. About 1/2 of my work day is doing repeating projects which have to be done daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly. Each has some actions that are sequential and some that are not, Many have a bit of a window in terms of either the day or the time. I would like to find an easy way to both cue myself and to track my completion of these steps as I do them. I want to do this so I don't fail to do a step or re-do a step (I do get interupted a lot). Also, I want to get a handle on how long these really take me. I used to use index cards in a tickler type of set-up but you don't really get the full view of a project that way. Also, I would like to be able to give this to another person in an easy to read format because the higher ups sometimes don't realize how many steps are involved and how long they take, or how often certain have to be done. Another method I used was to handwrite ina teacher's roll book the specific actions (where the names of the students would go), and designate the frequency. Then check off if done. But, the number of specific actions now exceed the number of spaces for names (usually 30). I am kind of thinking about something I could put on my Palm and synch with desktop.

Cueing/tracking recurring actions?
