Naming conventions

As you build complex Uiflow applications, it is important to keep your components organized. For internal organization purposes, Uiflow recommends you rename the components in your application to reference their function or to use a standard naming convention. For example, if a container contains components to display your total sales, you can rename the container Total Sales.
Naming becomes very important when using the same components in different or similar areas of your application, since the components will have the same default name.

You can easily rename components or containers in your UiFlow app. To rename a component/container:
