    Hi Ramathon,

    No, that's not possible in the form builder. That's possible when you take your form source code but keep in mind you only have to change the field IDs not the field names. Please be aware that field names are saved on the form database, once it's changed manually, the field cannot carry the data anymore once the form is submitted.

    Should you have further questions, let us know here. Thanks!
