    A wizard where we can mass update the Unique Field Names

    Asked by Metro4Rent_William on May 18, 2017 at 07:26 PM

    This is tedious the way I'm doing it.

    For every question on my form, I have to:

    - Click on the question

    - Click on "Advanced"

    - Click on "Field Details" 

    - Edit the "Unique Name" field

    Is there a better way?

    - Can I have it so I automatically see the Advanced Tab and the "Field Details" button doesn't exist - the details just shows ... not sure why there's an extra click to make this happen.


    Ideally - I'd love to download a table with all the form questions and each of the attributes of the questions in its own column.

    Then I could mass update/change the form and then upload it back to you (but I know this presents a lot of risks)

    At least if the edit process were less tedious.


    Thoughts / Ideas?


    Thank you

    I agree to that. That seems a nice addition. But to simplify it more, it would be good if there's a separate window containing the list of all the field names where you can update them there all at once. This would make it so much easier :)

    This is what I have in mind:

    I have now raised this to our developers as a feature request. Unfortunately, I could not give you any time frame for implementation but once this is added, you will surely be informed here.
