could someone help me with this please. I am using the polkadot.js explorer to add a collection of NFT's to a chain. I can add the collection using this. enter image description here

Does anyone know how to add the name of an Item? So it will show up here. enter image description here

Thank you

name comes from ipfs JSON object that you can add using setMetadata call.

Let's say you have an object like

 name: 'My NFT #1',
 description: 'My first NFT on pallet uniques',

You then pin this object to ipfs first, then you get back ipfs CID, that you set as metadata on your uniques NFT using setMetadata
