I'm new to using Wise Package Studio and am looking for some advise from people who have used the product before... What are some good practices to follow and recommendations on how to organize projects in the projects directory to keep things neat? Also, does anyone have any good suggestions on how to name projects? I'd like to start out with a good structure and stick to it from the beginning to try and avoid orginizational problems in the future as the number of packages I manage increases.

We use <ApplicationName>_<Version> format to name projects . We are using Installshield Admin studio within our org but i think workflow and project management are very similar in both .
All Packaging steps should be a part of one workflow template which makes sure that you will create a single project for all the workflow steps .

Also directory structure is very important .
Following tips can be used for directory structure :
1) Use a central location for keeping all the packages .This can be a file server.
2) Create a root folder for all packages .
3) Sub Folders within root folder for each packaged application should follow <Application>_Version naming convention
4) create subfolders within step 3 for each packaging intermediate stage
e.g: 1. Source , 2. Documentation , 3.Repackager , 4. Final MSI , 5. Production etc

Your Packaging workflow should clearly mention what goes when into these directories .
