How can I rename the collections? [SOLVED]


#1

The collections can’t be renamed.
Only can be archived.
Will this feature be added in the future?


#2

Select the collection.

Lets you rename the collection.

%E5%BE%AE%E4%BF%A1%E6%88%AA%E5%9B%BE_20180709092051

This is what I am using like.

#5

%E5%BE%AE%E4%BF%A1%E6%88%AA%E5%9B%BE_20180709134711

have selected the collection.
I’m running 0.28.5.


#6

Select the collection so you can see the list of questions. Then you’ll see the edit button.


#7

I’m wondering if we use the same version.

@jinchener what are your access rights on that collection?

I just checked with a pre 0.28 version - and it has below icons right above the blue All questions when I’m logged in as admin:

Maybe it’s a Bug,CollectionButtons.jsx,only archiving and setting permissions are provided.

0.29.3 version source code

update: Turned out below was not the problem - but that Metabase versions less than v0.30 didn’t support zh characters in collection names due to a URL problem.

Well spotted @hztyzhq in v0.30 I think the problem isn’t there any more because there are no icons on the collection list anymore like shown in this post above:

So, in v30 you must go inside a collection to rename it.

@jinchener
Use the English collection name, and it’s all right!
