    How do I change the element type but keep same field name?

    Asked by sommerville88 on February 07, 2017 at 03:50 PM

    Change a yes/no drop down box into a single selection yes/no radio button but keep the field name the same so reports will continue to pick up correctly.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible. A workaround would be to add a new field with the same set of question and options then you can hide the original field in the form. If that's required, make it as a required field so it won't show an error in the form.
