    Is it possible to rename fields without losing any historic data?

    or is this something we have to request via the admin team to change the fields in the backend database?

    You can actually rename fields directly just like how you added a label and it will not loose its corresponding submitted data.

    If you however delete a field and replace it with a new one with different label, that might cause data loss.

    If you are referring to something else, kindly explain in detail and share some screenshots.

    Hi, these are the Fields I wish to rename - I want to make all of my booking forms "uniform" with each other - to allow me to easily pass data to my invoice.

    It is possible  to change the unique name however, please note that the unique names are used to populate and pass data.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you have further questions.
