Keep track of items in a collection

joren Pro says:

I have a collection of watches that I like to rotate every week using throughout the year. In the past, I would use a spreadsheet to keep track on which watch I would use for the coming week. Today, I used RTM to remind me which watch to wear next. A key to this tip is using RTM's 'every' function for frequency.

Here is an example of how I would setup rotating task schedules for three watches. The examples assumes that the reminder always happens on a Sunday:


Task Name: Switch to Watch #1
Due Date: sun, July 1
Frequency: Every 3 weeks

Task Name: Switch to Watch #2
Due Date: sun, July 8
Frequency: Every 3 weeks

Task Name: Switch to Watch #3
Due Date: sun, July 15
Frequency: Every 3 weeks

A couple of notes:
- If you have X items to rotate, you can change the frequency number to the number of its to rotate.

- You can different frequency of Days, Weeks, or Months.


Hope this helps,
Joren
