Scripting Question

Organizing Scripts Better

11/04/2014 1822 views
Hi everyone - 

Basically what I am hoping to accomplish or find out if anyone else has thought about this, is a better means of organizing scripts.

I am currently employing a fairly specific naming convention for my scripts, which is helpful (but becoming a gigantic list of scripts to sort throught) - as such: SW - Software Vendor Name - Application Name and Version - Script Purpose /Script Parameters - Location (if necessary). In a real life example, my location specific script to install Acrobat XI Pro title reads like this: SW - Adobe - Acrobat XI Pro - INSTALL /P - BLGS.

What I would love (and this is may be the wrong forum for this) is labels FOR scripts (NOTE: Not associating scripts with a smart label in order for the script to know which computers to run on) - but labels that organize scripts - such as strictly SW scripts, Adobe scripts, install scripts, etc.

Has anyone else thought about this and/or come up with a way to better organize them? I'm up for changing my naming scheme as I am only at about 70 scripts right now...better now than when I have a few hundred.

  • no thoughts from anyone? Any thoughts are appreciated.
  • I am looking for a way to organize my scripts on K1000 and ended up here. Just wondering whether you made any progress other than naming conventions.

Have you tried filtering in the search box when you are looking for something specific?  You can also put search words in the notes section such as SW, location, etc.
