Rename fields

Rename form field names that you don't have control over when viewed on the submission page

It’s not always you have control over the form your submissions are coming from. If you’re using a CMS or some other form of web app, the fields sometimes show up in your form with a nice label like “First name” but when the submission actually come through the name is field_12. Which isn’t the most user friendly name.

You can rename fields by double clicking on the field label when looking at a submission, writing a new name and pressing enter. Just like this:

This field will now be renamed for all future submissions, both when viewing a submissions but also in outgoing emails, through the api, when sent to Zapier etc.
