Change the Name of a Field

You can easily rename a field at any time.

To change the name of a field:
  1. In the table bar on any page, click the table containing the field you want to change.

  2. Click SETTINGS, then click Fields.

  3. Click the name of the field you want to edit.

    The field's properties page displays.

  4. In the Label text box, edit the name.

  5. Click Save to save this change, or click Save > Save & Next to save this change and go to the next field.

Tip: If you just want a different label to appear in a report, change the column heading. To do so, click the column heading menu and select Column properties. Within the Column Properties dialog, type in the name that you want to display at the top of the column (300 character limit). This name will appear above the column in this report only, and if you save the report as a spreadsheet. The field name remains the same.
