    How can I change how field labels display in a report?

    Asked by mlheureux on August 10, 2015 at 02:28 PM



    I'm trying to figure out how to assign shorter names to certain questions in my form to make them more digestable in a report.

    For example, I have the following question in my form:


    Would you be comfortable having a follow-up call in English?


    Comfortable with a call in English Might be able to do a call in English, but would prefer a call in my language Not able to have a call in English



    ... but in my report I would prefer it to show up as "English?" -> (Yes/Maybe/No).


    How can I go about doing this?


    Thanks for your help!

    The field labels are forwarded to reports as they are in the form.  There is not currently a way to edit the format of the output to reports.  Using shortened labels along with sub-labels, hint text pop-ups or inline hint text to supplement the shortened label would be your best bet:
