Best practice for board to wire, wire to board in schematic


The wiring harness will be:

Pin header male on board --> female socket --> wire --> female socket --> Pin header male another board

Putting the parts (male pins, female socket, etc. on the schematic is no problem.

But, I think I want the net names to be the same from board to board.

Is a global label on the various wires the way to go?

Or I just making it harder than it needs to be…

You may want to consider using a custom symbol for these connectors with the pin functions as names, similar to how integrated circuits are done.
