Naming your views

Each view has a unique, descriptive name, called a view tag. A view tag must be a simple name containing no special characters. While spaces are legal, we do not encourage view tags that contain spaces.

We recommend you choose a name that helps you determine the owner and purpose of the view. Names like myview or work do not describe the view's owner or contents; if you work with more than one view, such generic names can lead to confusion.

The following are examples of good view tags:

  • susan_rel2
  • laura_rel1_bugfix
  • david_rel2_CR002311
