Act Pro 2013 - Change Field IDs

Trying to assist an end user with Act Pro 2013.  They are interested in modifying the field headers/IDs in their database.  For example, the field labeled Company would then reflect as Account.  Is this a feature available for the end user to manipulate?  I'm not familiar with the database.

Re: Act Pro 2013 - Change Field IDs

You can edit almost any field in the database, although, in your example, if you change the Company name to "Account" the "Companies" option on the navbar on the left side of the screen still Displays as "Companies" 


Alternatively, they can create brand new fields instead of altering existing fields. It all depends on how they're wanting to use the Contacts with the Companies section or if they're wanting to use the Companies section at all. I would recommend testing in a demo before putting it into production. 


To create/edit fields, refer to the following knowledgebase article:
