How to customize the name of the notes field label?

I am trying to store my SSH private key as notes, either as part of Secure Notes or in the notes section of the Password Catagory.

I need to have the hardcoded label name "notes" editable. I mean to have the field name/label for notes to be user defined rather than the hardcoded value "notes".

Please view the attachments for a better understanding.

    Hi @Rajalakshmi!

    Thank you for the suggestion! At the moment you cannot rename that label, but I will let the developers know that you would find this useful, perhaps they can consider it for a future update :+1:

  • Is there any update or workaround for this?

    At present we do not have a workaround that enables the use of multi-line text in a custom-labeled field. It is possible to add a new text field to an item and label it as you desire, but this field would not be multi-line like the default notes field. I'm sorry I don't have an option to share here.

    With that said, SSH keys are an interesting case and I'm really hoping we'll be able to do something more custom for them in the future. 🙏🏻
