Looking through files and folders and remembering where you are up to can be really time consuming, but for some time now I have been colour coding my files so that I can see their progress. This is a great feature on Apple Macs and use it for a number of things.
When I’m doing photography and video I often colour code files to indicate if they are good or bad, so if I’m looking through my photos I might mark them green because I like them or red if they are ones I would more than likely not look at again.
I also use the colour file label, which is used for colour coding, to mark the status of a document that I am working on, so one colour can be used for in progress, another for review and another for complete.
What is great is that I can use the Finder for searching on these files or folders based on their colour.
