Hi, 

 

Is it possible to change the field names in Agol directly, not the display name, but the real name of the field? Also without  using Python, because my team as not the knowledge yet. 

Thanks

Isabelle

Greetings @IB3 

As @Katie_Clark said, you cannot change the field names of existing attributes, but you can create new fields with the names you desire and use the Calculate operation to copy the values of the original fields. Please see Calculate field values for instructions on how to use the operation. Once the values have been copied you could delete the original field.

Hope the above helps.

You cannot rename fields once they've been created, you would need to create a new field and do a field calculation to transfer over the values to the new field. 

Best,
Katie

Thanks, I will create new ones with Python. Pity that this can't be done directly yet.
