Renaming custom inputs helps you quickly identify the input’s purpose.
For example, suppose a decision recipe evaluates CCI levels. In that case, you can rename the input to tell you specifically what the decision is referencing, such as “CCI High Level Trigger,” so you know that the CCI reading triggers a specific action.
Renaming inputs can be helpful if you use multiple custom inputs inside an automation. Customizing input labels and descriptions is not required, but it’s a best practice to simplify your automated trading.
In this video, I'm going to show you how to easily and quickly rename any custom inputs that you have inside of your automations.
Now inside of this particular automation that we're in right now, which is our CCI Swing with Spreads scanner, you'll notice on the left-hand side I've got a number of custom inputs that this automation is using.
And here, on the left-hand side, we can see the name of the custom input and how many usages are used inside of the automation.
To edit any of these custom inputs and rename them, you simply click on the icon at the inputs. Then you can select the input you want to edit and change any of the fields here.
In this case, we might want to add something like ticker symbol to make it even more specific. Once we're good to go, we simply hit save.
We can change any of these other ones here, again, just the same way that we changed the others. We can call this one our CCI High Level Trigger, and we can edit the other ones here as well. Call this one our CCI Low Level Trigger.
Once we're good to go with all these changes, we simply just save the change and then click done for our custom inputs.
Notice that as we were going, all of these custom inputs were changing as we were saving them. This shows you that all of these changes are saved inside of your automation, and once you're good to go with your new changes, you simply just save out of your automation editor and go right back to your bot.
