  • 1.  Rename columns in a summary report

    Posted 04-05-2021 10:54
    I've got a quick one! Is it possible to rename the columns in a summary report?

    In table reports I can update the Column properties. I don't see an option to do this in summary reports. Is there some option I've missed? (I tried making formula fields within the summary report, but they're limited to 3 - I'd like to show alternate names for 21 columns in one report.)

    This time there is not a way to rename columns in a summary report. The only workaround, (and I know that you won't like this one if you have 21 !!  columns to rename), would be to make a mirror formula which has the same value as the original field but with a different name.

    Thank you for the confirmation, Mark! I'll have to consider letting go of my oh-so-useful-to-me naming convention in favor of names that'll work for users.

    If you decide to rename an existing field label, would the change impact reports or forms where the field is located, or it the update be applied without a problem?

    No problem for reports or forms. But if you are using pipelines, you need to check if it's ok there.
