OK, no one likes to think about server protocol. Again, simplicity works. Consistent file handling/naming makes things easier. Organize the file structure naming at job inception. Keep it that way. No renaming as the process moves along.

I prefer: [job#]-[element#]-[description]-[revision#].

If an element is made up from several files, add a letter after the element number. Using a structure like this has several  benefits.

  1. Files can be searched by the job number.
  2. Elements and their components stay grouped in a job folder.
  3. Version numbers ensure you are working with the latest file.
  4. As files are moved from one folder to the next,
    they stay in the same grouping.
  5. Dated folders track files in and files out.
  6. Versions folders keep the main folders from getting cluttered.

Folder structures should remain the same from job to job. Keep it simple and obvious. I keep a master folder structure to copy for each new job. Just duplicate the folder and name it with the new job number and client name.
