This topic explains how to assign nicknames to your nodes—useful for nodes that you code at frequently in the Quick Coding bar.

Understand nicknames

You can use nicknames in the quick coding bar. They are particularly useful for nodes that have long names—for example perceptions of water quality could be shortened to PWQ. Nicknames must be unique in the project.

Refer to More manual coding techniques (Using nicknames to speed up coding) for more information about using the Quick Coding bar.
