Enable users to name routines that they create.
Currently, a routine created in the Alexa app is identified only by the time that the event is occur. It would help to be able to name the routine so that the user can tell what the routine does.
I'm starting to create lots of routines. Some are very similar and the way they are displayed currently makes confusing to know which one i need to edit. The other day i edited the wrong one.

Agree, this is a no brainer, & should have been availble when routines were first added. I use scheduled routines all the time & it is very frustratiung you can not rename them. This must be so simply to implement I can't believe it has taken so long to do.

It would be a HUGE improvement tonroutines to have the ability to name routines. I have a long list of routines for smart devices to turn on or off. With the Routine List as it is now, I only see when and at what time. Example: “Every day, at 7:30am”. This view tells me nothing about what device is going to do what. A little customization in giving the routine a name would be VERY helpful.

I would really like this feature. Our house has a wide range of smart devices and controlled via Alexa Dots and routines. I currently have 10 routines and each one of them appears as a [Repeatable period at time] or Phrase to tell Alexa.
I'd really like to give a routine a custom name. For example, 'Bedtime routine', 'I'm almost home' etc etc
I agree with this, I have so many routines that I get confused by as they are all identified only by the time. It would be great if we can also group it as I have morning routines depending on the day as we work shifts etc and also weekend and weekdays have different routines. At the moment it is all just one long list.
