Today, we've added a long-requested feature that has finally come to fruition: backtest naming.
Over time, we have received many requests to add more organization to the algorithm backtest workflow. As we have been working to improve the backtest feedback loop with the new full backtest page, it was the perfect time to rethink how backtests were currently named.
To name a backtest at start, you can use the "Run New Backtest" popup found on the "All Backtests" page for a particular algorithm.
All of the backtests can now have a name of your choice, so you don't have to remember backtests by numbers anymore.
You can even update the names of all of your backtests that you have run to date.
Backtest names will take precedence throughout the site when available, otherwise we will continue to default to the backtest numbers. I hope this new feature allows you to keep track of your ideas, and refer back to them easily.
As a reminder, feedback is always welcome. Happy backtesting,
