Re: Handy Tips: for keeping better track of rotation.

3.) Place this just to the right of the Hoster screen so both Hoster and Notepad are in full view.

4.) I use all small letters as I list the "official" rotation in this notepad column.

5.) Doing it this way avoids having to depend on the Hoster playlist as some of us don't keep the "already played" names, and some of us tend to move names around a bit if singers aren't in the room and get moved up or down a notch.

6.) I also erase those names in the notepad listing if I am sure that they have left. I have used this since day 1 and it works like a charm.
I used to use "sticky notes" for this but now with the new "rotation" it isn't necessary.
