  • Hi tundrwd,

    You can't directly change the type of the field. You could potentially set it to optional, hide, then create a custom field with your values and work from there.

  • Hi Tun,

    No, you cannot change this.

    You need to create a new field for this.

  • Hi tundrwd,

    It won't be possible.

    - Create new attribute of type Picklist with all possible options.

    - For existing records in system you can run one time utility that will map existing topics to new picklist.

    This way you will not lose existing data.

    Hope this helps!
