I'm trying to play in challenges more consistently and to stop missing deadlines. I used to save the challenge links in a tool bar on my browser. I had to change the title of the link to get in the due date and sometimes I was just to lazy to do that. As a result I missed challenge deadlines.
In December I tried a slightly different approach. I added sub-folders to my toolbar Challenge folder. Each of the sub folders corresponds to a date in any given month. As I find challenges I am likely to want to play in, I drag that challenge and drop it into the appropriate date challenge.
As I sit down to create, I just open the next closest challenge due date and with one click can open tabs for each challenge on my browser. (I use mozilla's firefox - and the option to open all is at the bottom of the list. In Edge, a right click will give the option to open all.) I have a few links at the top for challenges that don't really work in my date folders. I also have a "played" folder where I move the completed challenges to. Just incase I miss seeing the results on a busy day/week. I can go back and check on them.
Here is what it looks like for the next batch of cards; the are all due after the 18th and before the 24th:
I am loving this new approach. How do you decide which challenges to play in or organize your DT duties?
Thanks for stopping.
