Keeping track on duplicates. Should your SuperMemo collection only be yours?
I constantly update many items and articles (topics) into my collection. I put medicine related in one whole collection category (I keep track of categories, such as cardiology, using tags). But items do go there at once.
Once new items get out of my desktop collection (where I create and edit all new items, or put new articles) they go into a “Pending for sharing” category. When ever I have time or my partner for study is willing to take on more items, I share the items in this “pending for sharing” category by transferring a branch.
Once the items are transferred to my partner’s collection I reset the history of repetitions on his collection. When I get home I just move the elements from the folder I transferred to my partner into my “residency collection”. I’ve done this process many times, but lately I started to wonder is there an easier and functional way.
Yesterday I added a whole 9 articles, that I haven’t remember I did before (“low” priority of course, double quotes meaning notting goes into SuperMemo that isn’t important enough). Of course I had to search for a fragment of the text (title mainly) and find each article.
How do you keep track of the elements you share with SuperMemo. How do you know some was already added to you collection before.
In SuperMemo, there is no way to find duplicates or is it? How do you tranfer items or topics with friends or family on a constant changing basis?
