Is there an easy way to find suggestions on any profile I edited (not just watchlist)?

What way have you been using to date? 

There's the posted once a week Suggestions page which lists any profile with any one of a number of errors

There's the Family Activity Feed for your watch list

There's the Comments section way down at the bottom of the profile page where someone may have made a comment but you will have (or should have) already received notice of that Comment in your email

There's private messages sent by others to you which will appear in your email

I wanted to see if there was an easy report like the weekly suggestions.

I don't think there is an "easier" way ... you can see in your Contributions page all the things you have done, logged by time for each day and that would include any work you did on any profile you do not manage as well as any work you did on the ones you manage 

PS/ the word Suggestions is usually reserved the page that contains the list of errors; Comments is a word you will find on posts in g2g and you will find there is a box at the bottom of any profile page where one can post a Comment about that profile 

On each profile of course is a box for "Explain what you did" comments such as fixed typo, added a source and so forth -- if you did something to change that profile, it would appear also on your Contributions page

On WikiTree + in the left hand menu, if you click on the "Managed by" option you can enter any Profile Manager's ID to check for suggestion errors.

This is helpful, but instead of merely managed by, I want to see any in which the last contribution to this profile was made by Pauli-288 (me).  I was hoping there was already a handy report so that in addition to checking my weekly suggestions for profiles I manage, I could check profiles that I don't manage but I recently edited.  I can get this from my contributions list and then look at them one-at-a-time, but I think it would be helpful to me and other users to be able to see any error made, especially on profiles we don't manage.


If you work on an area/time period you can cast a wider net and look for those. For example, I look at 19cen United States Netherlands orphans, since I do a lot of work with those profiles.

On the profile-ID menu, at the very bottom, is "Suggestions"
by Dennis Wheeler G2G6 Pilot (538k points)
it only covers profiles that I manage.
no, that menu option is available for all profiles.
My mistake, sorry.  I really was looking for one report.  I already look them up one-at-a-time.  Thanks.
Thanks for asking this question Deb. I was also hoping for one report. I introduced a systematic error in about 100 profiles. Some I manage and can get the suggestions, others I do not manage.

The answers above give good ideas about how to make the corrections, it will just take a little more work than if I had one list.
