    Hello richardh9999,

    Do you want to change the ID of the fields?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the field ids. These are unique identifiers and used for saving data in our database. These ids are auto generated by our server scripts and there is no way to change it. 

    Though it is possible to chnage the field id by downloading your form's source code. But if you change any field id, your form will stop working.

    Thank you!

    The Name field works as the same as all the other fields that a form contains regarding to IDs, they cannot be changed, otherwise the form will no longer work. As my colleague has already explained our servers script autogenerates the fields ID so all the functions fields performed are based in the IDs, that's why you cannot change it.

    I hope this helps.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this.

    Thanks
