    I'm afraid this feature is not yet implemented. Please note that our backend team will evaluate, prioritize and then the implementation will occur. 

    If you have any specific requirement please let us know the same and we can try to sort them out.

    I would like to import "Unique Names"(Field > Properties > Advanced > Field Details > Unique names). I have one form having more than 100 fields and i have a unique name for each field that i would like to import in bulk. Adding unique name individually is very tedious.

    Let me know if someone from your team able to import this data for me.

    Some from your team have suggested me import app but it is only import submissions but not unique names.- https://www.jotform.com/answers/1782338-Import-Unique-names

    Thanks,

    To clarify, do you want to update your field unique name from a third party source?

    Unfortunately, this is not possible.

    Can you please explain further why do you want to change all your fields unique names?

    Looking forward for your response.

    We are working on the prefilling the data in a form from our system that's why we want to change the unique names of fields.

    You can prefill data in the form without the need to change the unique name of the fields. Basically you only need the field's label/titles to do field mapping. Multiple integration app uses the same method -- which you can easily see in the field mapping screen.

    Example, on MailChimp integration
