Slack Channel Naming Guidelines

Updated:

 

By default, the Slack sidebar sorts channels alphabetically.  In effort to keep things organized and useful, SMC has established a naming guide.

A channel should have a 2 or 3 letter prefix to assist with the sorting.  This is a working list, it is not comprehensive, add new prefixes as needed.

 dev_  Development Related Channels
 dsc_  Discussion Channels
 eit_  European IT
 hr_  Human Resource Department Related Channels
 it_  IT Department Team Specific Channels
 ops_  Infrastructure Related Channels
 prj_  Project Related Channels
 tst_  Test Channels
