Find your lesson plans fast with Rummage!

How much time do you spend looking for files on your computer?

How many times per week do you say, "Where did I put that attachment with the students essay in it?  I know I saved it before I deleted the e-mail!"  And then spent ten minutes searching where you *should* have put it, but obviously did not?

How many different places in "the cloud" do you store your files?

If you are like the average person, you have at least two places on the Internet that you store files.  You might have Google Drive or DropBox or Box or OneDrive or iCloud or <insert the flavor of the week here>, plus your computer plus your network storage at school!  How can anyone keep track of all those different places to store files!  Sure, you can try and be organized and create a folder structure and make sure you file things religiously -- but then what do you do when your department chair says, "I'm going to start a new series of folders for scope and sequence so we can all contribute to it on my DropBox!" -- But YOU use Google Drive?!?!

Well stop pulling out your hair, Rummage is here!  Rummage allows you to search your computer in just seconds by using some simple key words or phrases -- not just by file name.  In a mere few seconds Rummage delivers a list of relevant files and ala kazaam you have your file!  It's that easy!  Do you remember how long ago you saved it?  Or who sent it to you?  Even better!  This well-honed tool can use anything you can think of to help search through all your folders and locations to find the file or files you are looking for.  And you don't have to be a computer genius to make it work, either!

Rummage is a boon to anyone who deals with multiple classes, plus administrative documents and also happens to have personal files that they need help keeping track of.  Imagine being able to pull up a list of documents that pertain to that meeting about the list of courses for next semester that is coming up in an five minutes?  With Rummage, you'd be able to have a list of documents that are relevant in seconds sitting in a nice, clean, easy to read interface.
