Mass update form Labels

We recently renamed Departments and Classes using the ‘Rename Records/Transactions’ page. Is there a way to propagate those changes to all the forms?

When you update the label for a custom field, it allows you to apply those changes to all forms. Wondering if there’s a way to do that.

Looks like there’s no mass update option, this is what I found in the Help Center: “Field labels for records and transactions on previously created custom forms do not change when you make changes on the Rename Records/Transactions page. You will need to manually edit field labels on custom forms.”

Thanks! I’m hoping someone has a clever solution.

It would be annoying to update all the labels.

Yes… I don’t know. If you could load the form as a record, but you can’t. You might be able to create a client script that runs on all records that re-label these fields but I would script only if there are so many forms a manual update would be almost impossible.
