Adding A Url In Django-template

i tried to add a url in django template which is supposedly to log out a user

<div><a href="{% url 'accounts.views.user_logout' %}">logout</a></div> 

but it threw a NoReverseMatch

the template:

<header class="grid-header header">
    <div class='logo-text'>Nitro fleet</div>
    <div class="profile-detail">
        {% if user.is_authenticated %}
        <img class="profile-img" src="{{user.picture.url}}" />
        <div>
        <div>{{user.username}}</div>
        <div><a href="{% url 'accounts.views.user_logout' %}">logout</a></div>
        </div>
        {%endif%}
    </div>
</header>

the url of the app (accounts) that has the logout view:

from django.urls import path
from . import views
appname = 'accounts'
urlpatterns = [
    path('register', views.register_view , name='user_register'),
    path('login', views.user_login , name='user_login'),
    path('logout', views.user_logout , name='user_logout'),
]

the view function:

def user_logout(request):
    logout(request)
    return HttpResponseRedirect(request.path_info)

the complete error log:

Just use the name of the view: {% url 'accounts:user_logout' %}
