Naming Convention for Salesforce Report Types

I thought that I’d share a naming convention that I have started using for Salesforce report types. As shown in the snapshot, the naming convention uses “IX” for left outer joins and “IXI” for inner joins. I also started using a pseudo SQL syntax in the Description field. In the snapshot, Users and Contacts are standard Salesforce objects, and Participants is a custom object.

Anyway. That’s it. Short and sweet. I hope you find it useful.
