Tips for creating names, labels, and descriptions

  • Plan your labels and keywords before you create new items.
  • Use labels and keywords consistently over time
  • For navigating quickly from one item to another, click on labels in the item's metadata.
  • Use short names for profile properties, because these names reappear in rules and other parts of the UI.
  • Names for items such as listeners and dialogues can be longer and more descriptive.
  • You do not need to use underscores or dashes in longer names; using spaces works just was well.
  • Prefix item names with keywords. This is powerful when using search, sorting similar items, easily scanning item names.
  • Use keywords relevant for your organization, e.g.:
    • Data origin or source
    • Brand or content section
    • Team or user
    • Year or season
    • Campaign ID
