    I've got a bunch of Automations, and since they are only displayed by time (mine are all time triggers), it's kind of a pain when I need to tweak one. Anyone else wish it were possible to assign a 'name' to them?

    I just set up Homekit to work with my new Hue Hub 2.0, and I've been setting up some lights to turn on at certain times. I would agree that changing the names of the automations would be helpful - you can't see the automation assignments in the list view.

    Some apps, like the free Eve Home app allow you to type in your own names for identifying HomeKit triggers. In Eve you'll find this under Scenes > Timers/Rules.
