Naming conventions and naming schemes

File management and naming is absolutely essential to the success of any project.

Files should be saved in logical locations with appropriate file names.

For example doc1.docx does not tell the user anything about the file. Cover Letter.docx is more appropriate.

This shoud be stored in a folder called Letters or similar.

If using a database to store documents metadata needs to be completed for each file as well so that it can be easily searched for and found.

Different outcome types will require different naming conventions.

For example a static website will usually require the home / main page to be saved as index.html. If this was a php based website this would be index.php
