One of the primary features of our campaign notebooks is the front index. Borrowing from the bullet journal (bujo, for short) model, it eliminates the need to divide your notebook into sections and allows you to just use the next available page to take your notes. Here are some tips that will help you get the most our of your front index.
Add symbols in the margin
Remember, the index list is not alphabetical. You enter information in it as you go along. So, if have a few entries that you want to be able to pick out immediately without having to read through the whole index list, make sure to highlight those with a symbol in the left-hand margin. You'll be able to find them at a glace. Stuff like your list of XP, contacts list, or treasures list would be good for this, depending on the system you're using to play and what is important for you to track.
