Reviewing the various places I keep notes and schedules with regards to voice acting, I was curious what everyone does to keep it all organized, and if anyone has any "must use" tools to stay on top of it all.
I'm currently using the Passion Planner to keep track of my schedule. It lets me see my weekly calendar, and track habits (spending X hours/week studying, X hours/week marketing, completed X auditions, etc). However, I'm thinking about moving to a digital format, as my planner is almost full. I enjoy the tactile satisfaction of highlighting boxes as I complete the tasks, but being able to quickly view/update, without having to carry anything extra, might be worth getting rid of my colorful pens & highlighters.

Folders (Windows Desktop).
I have a VAC folder, a CCC (Casting Call Club) folder, etc.
Inside said folders I have individual folders for each project I'm involved in or have auditioned for.
I've also got separate folders for projects I'm directing, where I can gather up voice files as they're sent to me, keep a list of who I've sent scripts to, which roles have been cast to which voice actor, who has CONFIRMED that they've accepted their roles, etc. (Usually I have a sub-folder for each role as well, at least for major roles, sometimes I'll have just one sub-folder for "extras" or "chorus".)
Of course, having some sort of calendar, to-do-list, or ANY way to record what deadlines you have due, what they're for, and when they're due is essential so you don't just forget. But as for the style, I'd say that's personal preference! Could be a calendar app, a Google doc, a list in a .txt file, putting deadlines as MM-DD-YY on the front of your project folders (which auto-arranges them in ORDER of your closest deadlines first!) or something else or any combination. Just whatever works for you!

Kokoro Hane: I extended my audition for extras by one day! So if anyone was thinking of auditioning, there is still all of tomorrow! I figured since I am busy tomorrow, might as well let people send in a few more ^^

prudentpardons: Exactly, what do they mean by "dangerous"? That's a very peculiar statement to make to someone
