If you’re dealing with organisations in your database then it’s common to have countless acronyms to keep track of alongside their full names.
Ideally your database should probably have a reference to their full name (useful if you need to invoice them!). But if the organisation is always known by its acronym internally, it might be hard for your team members to actually track down the record when they want it (especially if they can’t remember what the acronym actually stands for!).
That’s why we’d always recommend using another field within your database (and a searchable one) to keep track of any acronyms used. That way, whenever a team member searches by the initials alone, they’ll get the intended record straight away rather than having to waste additional time searching.
