Standardization of File Names

By thomasa ·
I am trying to develop a standard naming convention for saving files on our network. As the amount of data that have stored increases it is becoming increasing hard to find saved files. We have used folders to the best of our ability. I as wondering what others have done in this area.

common abbreviations

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Standardization of File N ...

establish a list of common abbreviations (probably already have one for other documents) and have people use them in making file names, eg
fin = financial, mgmt = managment, hr = human resources/employment, also establish an order of precedence.

thus a file on financial management within human resources would be hr_fin_mgmt.???

whilst one on employment issues in the financial management area would be fin_mgmt_hr.???
