  • I think help file will  not  be  changed  automatically as per  my knowledge, These help files are htm files  and  i think  you have to manually open  these files  (they are in the CRMWeb installation directory) and  edit them.

    May be some editor like Visual Studio  which  can  serach and replace between file will be handy.

    yeah  just  confirmed on this link

    What else should get renamed?

    When you rename an entity, the following list of items needs to be renamed as well:

    • The entity singular and plural name
    • The entity display name
    • Labels on related entity forms – if Contact is renamed to Person, the account form's Primary Contact field label should be changed accordingly.
    • Help files
    • Text strings
    • Left navigation items
    • Reports
    • View names

  • Hi,

    Also just make sure to take back of your help file before modifying them.
