    Field names

    Asked by kulisz on October 17, 2014 at 01:50 PM

    How may I make the form report fields with different names than those that are listed on the form?  For example I would like to have First Name field report as <fname1>, Last Name as <lname1>, etc.

    Can you transfer forms from a different form generator?  I have a number of forms on a different form generator, and I am considering moving over to your site.  Redoing all these form is a 500+ hour project.  Here is the link to one of them:  https://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/4NMby30J8Fa2sXL55026lfx.

    Appreciate your help.

    Hi kulisz,

    To confirm, you would like to end the name of your fields in your reports?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the name of the fields in the reports. The fields are displayed how they are created in the form. You can however choose which fields you would like to have appear on the report.

    I have moved your question regarding transferring your forms to a new thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/445217 

    It will be addressed there.

    Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you with anything further.
