Toby is a tool that I didn’t know I needed until I used it for the first time. Toby is a Google Extension that will open all of the tabs that you need with one click! Each time you open Google Chrome, Toby is the first tab that will appear. This page will show all of your grouped tabs organized in “collections.” You can group tabs in “collections” for each period or subject. You could have a collection for any group of tabs that you open regularly.
I group my tabs by time of day as well as recurring documents that I need to reference often including PLC meeting documents or pacing guides. I have a collection that is titled “Good morning!” that I use each day. I click “open all tabs” once, and Toby opens up all of the tabs I need for my mornings including Infinite Campus, lunch count, Outlook, Google Drive, etc.
I also have a collection titled “After lunch”:
