Foolproof Tracking/Organization Method

Anyone have any suggestions as to the best way of tracking foolproofing?

Just starting out, but want a system in place before I do. I don't want to realize half way through that I should have kept track of something I hadn't previously considered, so would greatly appreciate input or suggestions of indicators from anyone who has gone this path before me. If I make a spreadsheet, listing each game (i.e. "PT 36, Game 1"), then what should I record to measure progress, and to make sure no games slip through the cracks? Time? Number correct? Date completed? All of the above?

Thanks!

    A user named Pacifico created a spreadsheet to track foolproofing for PT 1-35, and user Not Ralph Nader uploaded it to DropBox. You can download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a9rdnxphn55ax0k/Logic Games Bundle Tracker.xlsx?dl=0

    I use that tracker, but I've added columns for section time and section incorrect total. I like to foolproof an entire section at a time, and it really helps me to see whether I'm hitting under 35 minutes total and get a feel for average number missed per section.

    Someone else also mentioned that they printed out one copy of the games, put it in a clear plastic thingy and used a dry-erase marker. I haven't tried this method so not sure how great it is - but can save lots of paper and ink if it works.

    @jzzraven All of the above, haha.

    If you shoot me a PM, I can send you an Excel spreadsheet I made that tracks all games, PTs 1-83.

    I used folders and text files to keep track of it. I personally don’t like the view presented by a spreadsheet

    @"Alex Divine" , would it be possible for me to get a copy of this too? I'm pleased to say that I've begun FPing the games.

    I write myself a note and put things at the top like "FLAG" or "I got this wrong." Then I write feedback and focus on the honest truth.
