    Here's how we do it:

    Project Name
    This one is a no brainer as we have job numbers opened in our accounting system so the projects are ##### Website Updates for Client.ย 

    Task Name
    Tasks should always be actionable or illustrative of the final expected state. "Build Task List Breakdown" or "Add Coupon Code" or "Code Instagram Feed on Homepage" the next right action to do.ย 

    Description
    This should have the detail. Sometimes we write up User Stories in here but mostly we just create a brief description and the Acceptance Criteria (how we know it's done).

    Hi Devon, we use an identical naming convention to what Tom posted above.ย  Because we're a physical product development company, our projects are SKU # - PRODUCT NAME.ย  Just as Tom mentioned, we use an action verb to begin our task titles and then what the action is applied to.ย  Cheers!

    Love your idea! We have been using Action Verb + Project Name + MM.DD.YY! The naming convention works well, I just wanted to see everybody's bright ideas!
