    Is it possible to control field names?

    Asked by emersum on January 30, 2011 at 02:48 PM

    Right now the forms assign names to the individual fields automatically, and the only way I have found to control them is to download the form source and change them manually - with the consequence that every time a form is changed, the code needs to be updated.

    Is it possible to add a property which controls the HTML field name?

    I am trying to automate the processing of JotForm replies and that would be invaluable.
