    When you setup a question and affect a specific ID. You can use this ID in formula or conditions or in text field.

    If you change the title of you question, the ID is changed. 

    All formula, text, condition using this ID are broken.

    Hello,

    You are right, editing field label will also affect unique name of a field. But, this should not affect associated conditions or formulas. Have you experienced this? As far as I can tell, only when unique name of field is used specifically, that part should be updated manually. This way, if using unique names to populate a text element, you will need to adjust it.

    Hello,
    This is my issue in video

    If I understand you consider that changing unique ID automatically it's normal.
    In that case I don't understand why it's not changed automatically in standard basic field
    I really have difficulties to understand why a unique I can be changed automatically. Specially when we have the possibility to change it..
    Can I expect an improvement of that point ?

    Yes, on your video is show the intended behavior. Within Text element, unique name is just text, it is not tied to any of fields till the moment form is loaded. I'm afraid we can not change this right away, but as far as I understand, you would like to have fixed unique names for fields. I will submit a feature request for this and when this is added, we will inform you right away.

    Thank you for cooperation on this!
