I use naming conventions for files that roughly follow this formulation…
QTS_2021_07_02-[Name]_[Subject] – the “QTS” prefix refers to a file that’s set up for a list a of questions (e.g., QTS_2021_07_02-Babe Ruth-New York Yankees).
The thing is, sometimes I just change the prefix so that the there are different files types, for different purposes, that relate to the same name / subject material. I’ve NTS for notes, TRA for transcript, MMO for memo, etc. Applied, it would look like…
QTS_2021_07_02-Babe Ruth-New York Yankees – for the question for Babe Ruth
TRA_2021_07_02-Babe Ruth-New York Yankees – for the transcript of the interview
NTS_2021_07_02-Babe Ruth-New York Yankees – for a summary of notes of the interview
MMO_2021_07_02-Babe Ruth-New York Yankees – a memo based on the interview
I’m wondering if there’s a way to somehow link these files together, so that (a) I know if a file is related to another file, based on the date, name, and subject, and (b) if there’s a way to, say, right click on one of the files to show the other, related files – and have the ability to select one of those files.
Hope this makes sense… And thanks for everyone’s help with this!
