That is the way I do it also. I also add my name and phone number, in case they ever need me.

In plant work I include where the panel is fed from.

No, just the breaker # and where it goes.

most panels are labeled with odd on the left and even on the right. this is usually stamped into the metal by the breaker positions. as long as the number on your schedule matches with the number next to the breaker, you'll be fine.

It does not take much to create a spreadsheet on your own.

Use CAUTION printing adhesive labels


A word of caution on printing adhesive labels.

I was on a service call at an office when they trashed a brand-new color laser printer while printing adhesive labels. I guess the heat from the fusing element caused the adhesive to soften, the labels to release from their backing and wrap around the rollers.

For labeling the end of the wire inside of the house, I wrote the breaker number on the back of the wall plate with a sharpie. This way if I am working on something, all I need to do is take off the wall plate and I know right away which breaker to switch off.
