What Is an Alias?

Each table in an app has a name—the one you give the table when you create it. But each table also has another name, which serves as a unique identifier behind the scenes. This covert name is called the table alias. When you reference a table in a formula or an API call, you must use the table alias.

To find a table alias:
  1. Open the table you want from the Table bar, click SETTINGS, then click Advanced settings.

  2. Click Advanced Table Settings to expand the section.
    Use this text (just as it appears) when you refer to the table in a formula.

    The Table aliasappears in all capital letters at the bottom of the section.


    Note:You can't change the name of a table alias.
