Hello co-mylotters. Over the past few weeks, I have been multi-tasking mylot, that is opening 4 to 5 pages of mylot and assign to different sections. Yesterday, I did a lot of mistakes, misplaced my tags to other discussion, I did respond to discussion where the content did not match, because I am supposed to respond 2 discussions. Then I put the picture on the wrong discussion. Now I learn my lesson, I will not do again multi-tasking in mylot as it get worst.

I can't multi task for the same reason as you. I would end up with a bunch of stuff where it shouldn't go.

Well, multi-task is some hard to do especially when one has no focus on what he/she is doing, but after some time, when one get use to doing it, that would make an easy task but still is prone to having mistakes - just like what happened to me the other day. I have just realize, I don't want to quit multi-tasking mylot as it lessens my time thus I am able to do lot of works simultaneously. Thanks for the response

I hope you have better luck at multitasking in the future. I am trying to get a little bit better at it.

Yep, I hear ya. I have done that from time to time, and I think it takes too much concentration making sure I post the right thing in the right place. One window at a time now unless I have a link or something I want to copy and make sure I do it right, lol!

It is hard to give up multi-tasking cause I love it much the fact that it lessen the time consume in responding discussions. I think all I need is to take extra effort to be cautious in writing response. I should see to it, I am posting on the right discussion before hitting post comment. thanks for the response.

I don't really understand why anyone would want to do that, work more than one window at a time. What benefit does it give you? I like to read all the discussions and when I respond I want to respond only to that one that I just read. I have read here where more people are doing the same as you. I don't understand how this is saving you any time or how you could give quality responses when your mind is on more than one discussion. Please try to explain this to me.

Now you can always skip the tags part! I know what you mean. I use my email notices to help me respond and have to wait until the page is done with the tags before closing it! For so many months, I was closing the page without adding tags and my posts did not show up!
