Suggestions Wanted - Naming convention for Drafts
I am looking for a naming convention for Zetteln files that will allow me to see at a glance, and search for, documents that are works in progress, pulling from (and, in my case, actually including using transclusion syntax) other documents in the ZK. Essentially I mean drafts of finished documents that still live within the ZK, and in fact the way I differentiate them right now is to use a #drafts tag. But I want a way to be able to see these things in a file list in other applications that don't support tagging, which means putting that information in the filename.
My first approach was to name files things like
- D - 201911061648 A Work In Progress
It's very visible, but it wrecks sorting. I then tried
201911061648 - D - A Work In Progress
But then I learned that search in most software cannot search for an exact string, so search on filename gets me anything with a
D and a
- in any order.
I'm considering something like
201911061648 § A Work In Progress
calling back to the old usage of §, but I worry about compatibility across devices and future-proofing (I did recently learn how to make a § in iOS, it' a long press on the &).
Has anyone else tried to do something like this? Any suggestions or thoughts?
