Working on a UX team, we've been looking at ways to improve the experience for our own workers in getting their job done and I was curious how other teams have approached file management.
In the course of a large project with many people involved, our typical project files can be made of scores of user research documents, design references and iterations, meeting notes, and so on. When bringing a new member of the team on to an existing project (or better yet, a new hire), it can often times be overwhelming to get up to speed simply by viewing the project folder.
Has anyone been able to find a structure, a tool, or any sort of method of arranging files in a way that keeps things from getting out of control? Specifically, do you use a native OS's file management system and focus on folder structure and naming conventions, or have some sort of software that manages files in a more comprehensible manner, etc.?
