    You can do this by renaming the labels in the form builder before exporting submissions as CSV or change the labels manually after exporting submissions.

    You can find and replace all texts.

    Guide find/replace with Excel:

    My use case will not allow the manual steps you suggest... Just need to edit the csv column names associated with a field. Do you have plans to support this ability in the future?

    Let me forward the thread to our backend team as a feature request for evaluation. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any ETA at this moment. However, if there is any news you'll be updated here on this thread. 

    Alternatively, you may consider using the same header as required in the CSV report for the form fields and hide the labels by injecting some CSS code. Let us know if that works to provide you as a workaround.

    Thanks!

    Do you support attaching CSV instead of PDF as an email attachment with the new submission notification? This would be perfect for our needs.
