One way to do it is to use the Scratch Pad. If you go to the My Wikitree tab, you will see Nav Home Page in bold. Click on that and you will see a bit of a "home page" for yourself. There is a box there where you can make some notes.

Another way to keep track of profile you've created or worked on is to go to my WikiTree on the top line and click on Contributions.  This will show all the profiles you've worked on from the most recent on back.  Of course this requires you to actually save your save your work as you go.  Otherwise it's likely to get lost before you get back to it.  I usually save at least every time I move to working on a new profile, though I don't necessarily save if I'm just cutting and pasting from one profile to another.  How often you'll want to save may depend on the style of work you do.

I also check on contributions; its like a history feed. If you will not get back to the profile within seven days, consider the TO_DO category for yourself.

It may also be helpful to know that the standard format for the URL to take you to a specific page looks like this:
https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Surname-123
So if you make a note of the name-number code for the person's profile, you can just type it into your browser.
You can also save a bookmark in your browser just like any other website.

If there are not a million people with the same name, you can also type the first name and surname into the search boxes at the top of the page, and that will take you to a list. You can order the list by birth date, etc. to make it easier to find someone.
