Hello all,

I am curious to know how some of you name or title your display grids?
I am trying to think of a consistent method in which to name display
grids in our documentation. I would prefer to think of a method which
includes a very generic name that could be applied to all the display
grids but find that to be challenging to come up with. For example, we
have a display grid that lists department codes and descriptions that
have been created in the system. In the past, we've called the display
grid "Department Code display grid" but now I am trying to think of
something more generic I suppose?

Happy Friday to all,
