Cannot change display name of a field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to change the display name for the field 'fullname' in the lead entity. I can edit the text in the box for display name but when i click on save nothing happends, however when i try it with another field it works fine. Is there something different about this field that stops it from being edited?

    Thanks

  • Open lead form and double click on this field and rename it, it seems you can't rename this field from field property directly.

  • That worked, its strange that it cannot be changed directly.

    In the view however it still shows it as its default display name, is there any way i can change that too?

  • The bad thing about renaming the label on the form is that it won't change the display name in advanced find for example.
