I hope I can explain this.

I was going through my plant list, trying to remember which ones I have added photos, comments and data proposals. Is there any way to make note on this list of these things and which ones I want to come back to later? All I can think of is jumping back and forth between this list and the links on my profile for photos, comments and data proposals. Maybe someone has come up with a better way?

Thank you for any suggestions.

Have you created any different personal categories for your list? You could make a category like "Needs more info" and put the things you want to come back to in that category. Does that make any sense? (And are you aware that you can create your own categories?)
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

The category is an excellent idea.

You could also add into the comments a keyword like "#TODO" and then later when viewing your list, do a Ctrl-F search for #TODO and it'll take you to them.

Thank you for your reply. No, I had no idea I could do that. I'll fiddle around a bit. :)

If you haven't seen the video tutorial on how to use the plant lists, I think you'd get a lot of benefit from watching it. It's only 10 minutes long:

It shows you how to use the category system and all that. Smiling
