Given that activities can be referenced by four different fields (short name, name, code, reference #), it's perhaps not surprising that we're not always consistent — this is a step towards addressing that.
We've cleaned up about half the references in our app and standardized on the format
[Short Name] - [Name]. That means that if you had an activity named
Access to School Lunches and you used the acronym
ASL as the short name, you would see it displayed as
ASL - Access to School Lunches…at least on pages like Activity Overview, Results Framework Objective, Location, and Diagnostics (we'll get to Admin Division, User, and Organization pages soon).
Eventually, we'd like to give Site Owners the ability to specify what an activity reference looks like — which fields, what format, what connectors (commas, dashes, semicolons, etc.) — but we're not quite there yet!
