New Feature: Update Scene URLs

11/08/2013 Posted by Brandon

We’ve added the ability to modify the URL used by each scene when viewing your Knack app.

Knack builds a URL for each scene by including a special part for each scene, as well as some record identifiers when necessary.

The problem was that if you changed the name of the scene or object you could have a URL that seemed completely off.

You can now change the URL part that each scene uses by clicking “Rename Scene” in the right menu:

This will update the part of the URL for this scene. Any links from other menus and views will be automatically updated to use this new URL.


  • You’ll need to update any links manually that you’ve typed in or entered outside the app.
  • Scene URLS need to be all lower case and can only contain alpha-numeric characters.
