Nickname removal

By default, none of my devices had a nickname, but rather showed the hostname in the device list.

 

I added a nickname to a device, but I cannot remove said nickname to go back to the default behavior. Is nickname, once populated, required?

  • Hi  beanery —

    Thanks for reaching out and for your question.

    Once a nickname has been added, it isn't possible to go back to not having a nickname.

      Jeff C. Would it be possible to get this put on the development list? Seems a bit silly that removing a nickname wouldn't be supported.

      RectusRat happy to share the feedback. Since the default state is the hostname, a recommendation, for now, would be to type in the hostname in the nickname field.

  • Guys this is really annoying!  We need the ability to remove nicknames so app returns to automatically display of current hostname!

     

    Please help us out.
