Template: Slack Channel Naming Conventions

When you're setting up a new public channel, use the following naming conventions to make sure it's easily findable:

Projects

  • #project-NAME

Note: If you run into a character limit, feel free to shorten project- to proj-

Temporary issue

  • #temp-

How is a temporary issue different from a project? A temporary issue is a critical issue that needs its own channel to diagnose/discuss/resolve in a short period of time. Temporary channels are expected to be archived within 1 month. If you expect it to be longer than 1 month, consider it a project.

Working groups

  • #wg-NAME

Teams

  • #team-NAME

Fun stuff

  • #fun-NAME
