Field Display Name Change - List of Fields in Advanced Find RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently changed the display name of a field from Orbus Contact to Sale Rep and published the change. However, when a user tries to select this field in an advanced find it still shows as the previous display name Orbus Contact. The schema name must stay the same as there are scripts and integration in place that trigger from this field.

  • Hi,

    On the basis of what I understood is that you changed the label name in that from editor from Orbus Contact to Sale Rep & published , But you have to changed it from the customisation.

    When you have to click on details in field properties form then Click on edit which gave your display name you have to change it & publish.

    hope , it's help you.

  • Hello, 

    If you want to have the new name in the Advanced find, you have to change the display name.

    The name can be change on different form so that's why you have to change the display name.

    Your scripts is complicated ? Do you know how to update it ?

  • Advanced Find uses the display name of a field. After you change the display name of the field, and publish the entity, then users should see the new name. However, the CRM client caches a lot of metadata, so a user may not see the changes until you refresh the browser
