Once you are familiar with the concept of Items in SimpleCommands it is time to dive into SimpleNames. SimpleNames allow you to personalize how you would like to address your Items and were created with the SimpleCommands Alexa skill (kloee for SC) in mind. SimpleNames allow you to call an Item by a name that is easy to remember and easy to communicate via voice, all without losing your original Item names. If an Item has a SimpleName you can use it to communicate with specific items via Alexa, otherwise you can use an item's default name.
Follow the steps below to add a SimpleName so you can communicate with SimpleCommands with your own terms:
1. Access any Item list from anywhere in the App. Then an item Item and press the pencil button in the top left corner of the popup controller to add/change/remove its SimpleName.
If you would like to edit a SimpleName go through the same process and just type in a new SimpleName to change the Item's SimpleName or empty the entry field to delete it. Don't forget to run Discovery on Alexa after you change your SimpleNames!
