How do I...?

How do I change a table name?

There seem to be two opportunities for adding a table. One route allows you to immediately name it, the second route lets you add a table but with no way to give 'new table' a meaningful name. Finding the first route seemed rather serendipitous and I can't find my way back to it!

    Hello,

    There are a couple ways to create a table. One method is to create one from the App Builder page, the other from the Table Builder page.

    To create a table from the App Builder page, click the Admin button on the top right of your screen. On the drop down, find the name of your app, then click the 'EDIT' button to the right of the app name. You'll be directed to the App Builder page. In the left hand column with the list of your tables, you can click the green "+ Add Table" button, whereupon a box will pop up with an empty field for you to fill out your table name. You can then click add and will be directed to the Table Builder page. This may be the route you described where you can immediately name your table.

    To create a table from the Table Builder page, click the Admin button on the top right of your screen. On the drop down, find the name of your app and click on it. This brings you to your app overview page. In the top right of the first section on this page (the Tables section), you can click the green "+ Add A New Table" button. This will take you to the Table Builder page, where you can add fields to your table. In the top left of the screen, it says the name of your table. In the case of a new table, it is called "New Table" by default. If you click on this, you will be able to edit the table name. Then just click the Save button in the top right to save the new table name.

    We have included a helpful link to our knowledge base article which describes the process of adding tables. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
