Add an internal name to a Stream

Follow

Learn how you can add internal names to your Streams to make it easier to identify and manage them.


 

Before you begin

  • By default, members of the Account Administrators and Content Managers user groups can add or edit internal Stream names. The following permissions control the ability to add or edit internal Stream names:
    • For Source Streams: Streams > Native Streams > Update and Delete
    • For Marketing Streams: Streams > Marketing Streams > Update and Delete
    • For Sales Streams: Streams > Sales Streams > Update Update and Delete

 

About internal Stream names

When you create a new Stream, you need to set at least a page title for that Stream. This page title is shown within Uberflip:

And it is also displayed as the Stream's title when the Stream is viewed in your Hub:

However, because it's intended to be publicly visible, the page title of a Stream often isn't very useful for working with your Streams as an Uberflip content manager. For example, you might need to know which of a given set of Streams was used for a particular campaign — but since the campaign name probably wasn't part of the page title, this can be challenging.

That is why assigning internal names to your Streams is useful: a Stream's internal name is only shown in the Uberflip app (not when the Stream is viewed in your Hub), which allows you to include any information you need (or even design and use a consistent naming convention):

This makes it a lot easier to manage your Streams at a glance, and keep track of what each one is for without having to dig into the Stream itself.

 

Add an internal name to a new Stream

You can set an internal name on any Source, Marketing, or Sales Stream when you create it.

  1. Log in to Uberflip and use the Hubs menu to select the Hub you want to work in.
  2. In the sidebar on the left, click on Content.
  3. On the right side, make sure you're on the Streams tab, then click the New Stream +  button:

  4. Choose the type of Stream you want to create, along with any options as needed. On the page where you set the page title, description, etc., use the Internal Stream Name field to specify the internal name you want to assign to this Stream:

  5. Once the Stream has been created, the internal name you chose will be visible on the Streams tab in the Content section, under the Internal Stream Name column:image.png
  6. The internal name is only shown in the Uberflip app — as before, only the page title will be visible when the Stream is viewed in your Hub:

Note

Setting an internal Stream name is optional when you create a Stream, so you can also leave the Internal Stream Name field blank if you prefer. If you do, Uberflip will automatically set the Stream's internal name to be the same as its page title. If you change your mind, you can always add an internal Stream name later.

 

Edit the internal name of an existing Stream

You can change the internal name of any existing Stream at any time. If you didn't set an internal name for a Stream when you first created it, you can use this method to add an internal name later.

  1. Log in to Uberflip and use the Hubs menu to select the Hub you want to work in.
  2. In the sidebar on the left, click on Content.
  3. Make sure you're on the Streams tab, then find the Stream to which you want to add an internal name.
  4. Click on the Stream to edit it.
  5. At the top of the Stream's edit page, you should see three editable text fields. From top to bottom, these are the Stream's internal name, page title, and description:

  6. Click on the Edit (pencil) button beside the internal name (the largest text, at the top), to edit it:

  7. Type in a new internal name, then click the checkmark button:

  8. Your new internal Stream name will be saved automatically, and will be applied to the Stream immediately.

Tips

  • The Internal Stream Name column on the Content > Streams page is sortable — just click on it to sort your list of Streams alphabetically by the Streams' internal names.
  • You can also use the Search box to search your Streams by their internal names (as well as their page titles, descriptions, etc.).
