Update text label when changing custom field type [Known limitation ATM]

edited January 2019 in Windows Beta


if I add a new custom field e.g. "Password" the label text ist only "Text" and I have to enter "Password" manually.

When selecting the field type, a meaningful label text should be dragged automatically

Best wishes :-)

    Hi @majortom,

    Thanks for writing in.

    I cannot reproduce this:

    Does it happen in a specific view?

  • Sorry, this was a failure of mine. I have entered the field value first. This will add "text" to the label.
    A subsequent change of the type does not lead to a text adjustment.

    Hi @majortom,

    That's a known limitation at the moment, we want to avoid overwriting anything you enter, so that if you had my mom's middle name, we don't want to overwrite it because you meant to change it to a password field.

    We'll improve this in a future update.
