Newbie question about queues

Is there a good argument for queue naming schemes? Does it make more
sense to give a queue name related to a type of problem (e.g. e-mail,
etc.) vs. departmental (e.g. HR, etc.)?

I apologize if this has been already answered. I haven’t yet found a
good way to search rt-users archives.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Ron

Choose a scheme that make assigning group rights to queues as
simple as possible.

you can use custom fields to break things down inside of queues either
departments in the email problems or vice versa so flip a coinFrom: Ronald Nissley [mailto:ronn@emm.org]

I thought it made sense to name the queues with some relationship
to the group of people who would watch it, then make a group of
the same name for access permission. There are still some
exceptions but it seems to work to have some-product-support
with a customer-facing group answering user-error kinds of
problems directly and pushing tickets that relate to real
product problems into the some-product-development queue
with a different group of watchers. We also have some
queues that are per-department for projects and tasks that
have a different life-cycle but again the idea is to keep
the right tickets in front of the people who can help
resolve them and out of everyone else’s way.

I think you can make arguments for both, but at my site we are dividing by
organization/responsibility, not problem topic.
