    How to change field names on submission?

    Asked by bgibson on March 31, 2016 at 04:11 PM

    I want to use specific field names when I download a submitted form.  That way I can upload that information into my system that requires those field names.  Can I do this?  Can I force the field name on the excel spreadsheet after a form is submitted?

    You can change your field names if you would like. To do that please go to your form builder and click on each field that you want to change:

    And on the new page, you can set name you wish:

    On the other hand, if you would like to change the names of fields in submission, then please follow:

    1. Go to Emails:

    2. Edit emails:

    3. On this page you can edit all names of the submission email body:

    And that will go with each submission.

    Please let me know if that is what you had in mind.
