How do you keep track of your unfinished WikiTree activity?

+16 votes
I explore different parts of the WikiTree forest and encounter red, black, and dark yellow privacy protected relatives.  I occasionally leave them private messages e.g suggesting they make an edit or add a category to a shared cousin (who they have locked down) or change their privacy level (if they have DNA results) etc.

I'm now realizing I don't hear back from the majority of my more secretive kinsmen. So I'm thinking of creating a free space page to log my contact attempts.

If you already track your encounters then please let me know what works for you?

Thanks and sincerely, Peter

Good Question.  One I need to ask myself.  Of course it's usually suggested to make a To-Do list free space page, and using to keep track of unfinished correspondence would fit right in.  Myself, I like keeping track of things in my old version of MicroSoft One Note.  I've set up a section for WikiTree, but haven't started using it yet, but I'll use your question to get me started using it.

I use OneNote too and love it!

Evernote is also good for this sort of thing.  It syncs across all your devices, so your info is on whatever you have with you, or are working on, at the time -- phone, tablet, laptop, desktop.

Of course, the to-do list freespace page would always be right here on wikitree.

When I've left a public comment on a profile and I want to follow up later, I use "Pocket"

If you've left private messages, you get a copy in your email. You could put those in an email folder to follow up later.
