Custom Forms: Updating Field Format

Avatar

Level 2

29-03-2022

Today if a field in a custom form is a text field and you'd like to be formatted, the only way to do so is to create a new field that is formatted. It would be great to be able to adjust fields from unformatted to the ability to add formatting.


Same goes for calculated fields. Today if you select a format for calculated fields (e.g. currency) and you need to change it, the only way is to make a new field. It would be really nice to be able to adjust formatting on calculated fields


Because there isn't a way to port data from one field to another, creating new fields when formatting needs adjusted ether means transferring data manually, with a tool outside WorkFront, or just putting the 'old' field at the bottom of the form and leaving it there until it's completely deprecated. These solutions are very inelegant
