2. Considerations to Naming and Organizing Your Files


Naming and Organizing Files: Why You Should Care 

You and your research team will be able to locate and use your files more easily if you name and organize them in a logical and consistent manner. The ideal time to consider how to name and structure the documents and directories you create is at the beginning of a project. When working on files collaboratively, agreeing on a naming convention will help to provide consistency, making it easier to find and correctly identify your files, as well as preventing version control issues. By assisting your colleagues in finding what you need when you need it, you and your colleagues will save time and frustration.
