Description: 

In this podcast episode, we look at the basics of naming conventions. We discuss what should be put in every file title, and what to NEVER put in a file title.

 

This training resource includes several related files: an audio file (7 min), a written transcript of the audio, a graphic titled "Document Naming conventions" and a link to the audio file on SoundCloud.
