Naming Conventions

How to name folders and images in Marketo

Marketing Activities

Our campus workspace is UWB. Because we are also a campus, we have added a second subunit to our convention. Note the convention: Workspace and Subunits are ALL CAPS. Initiative names are Title Case (space between words).

Campaign folders

[Workspace Abbreviation]-[Sub Unit]-[Sub Unit]-[Initiative]
Example 1: UWB-ADV-CHLR-Newsletter
ADV = Advancement
CHLR = Chancellor
This campaign is the Chancellor’s Newsletter, which is sent twice a quarter.

Example 2: UWB-NHS-ALUM (For all campaigns related to alumni)
In that campaign folder, we add a folder for the specific initiative (project)
UWB-NHS-ALUM-September Alumni Friends Reception
This is a one-time mailing

Add a program to a campaign folder

Note: At UWB we will use calendar year [CY] not fiscal or academic year.

[Workspace Abbreviation]-[CY]-[Sub-Unit]-[Sub-Unit]-[Program Type]-[Program ID]-[Description]
Program type : Most of our program types will be EM for email
ID – get the ID from the URL line when you open the control panel. It is the four-digit number before “A1”
Description: Title case, no spaces between words

Example 1: UWB-AY17-ADV-CHLR-EM-1562-OctoberNewsletter
Example 2: UWB-AY17-NHS-ALUMNI-EM-1482-SaveTheDate
