Naming Conventions

Gary Ploski Updated by Gary Ploski

Using naming conventions, your team can an easy step to organize campaigns and their content by defining a clear naming convention for stories, moments, and content.

Opal not only shows you what you and your team are creating, it also makes it easy to find what everyone is working on thanks to filters, labels, and, importantly, keywords.

Keywords stand out, even when there's a lot of noise around because they can find a single item, or dozens of items related together.

Story Naming Conventions

A story name should summarize the overarching objective, and make it easy for anyone to know what is happening. As a bonus, adding details such as who is involved in the story increases clarity about whom to contact if questions arise.

Tip: Use the description section to provide details on the larger objectives, KPIs, and story owner - if it isn't included in the title.

Examples

  • [Campaign Name]
  • 2023 Open Enrollment
  • [Campaign Name] | [Primary Industry/Solution] | [Story owner]

Moment Naming Conventions

Choose a moment naming convention strategically. The maximum length is 60 characters.

We recommend, not including the Story name, channel(s), or other details that can be easily filtered. Instead, add key information that will be used for that specific part of a campaign.

Tip: Always include a channel card to add to moments, so the moment will display in a presentation and Timelines.

Moment Naming Structure

Examples

  • [CTA] | Platforms
  • Registration | Social Push (PAID)
  • [PAID] - Campaign Name
  • PAID - Product Release
  • [Abr. Blog Title] | [Executive]
  • Target Case Study | Benjamin Poindexter
  • [Campaign #] | Moment Name | Go Live time
  • Time : 6742 | TIL - Pro tip | 0900

Content Naming Conventions

Content cards display the channel icon, and can be used to filter what you see on the calendar. We recommend removing the channel name from the content title, and adding your own take on content names.

In its place, add key details that will help your team quickly know what the content is, and how it will connect to the broader campaign plans.

Content Naming Structure

Examples

  • [Channel and Content Type] | [Goal]
  • IGS poll | Engagement
  • [Content Type] | [CTA]
  • IG Story | event reg
  • [Option #] [Channel] [Version #]
  • Option 1 IG Story V1
  • [Campaign Name] - [video format]
  • Back to School - 4:5
  • Back to School - vertical
