Hi,

before running in the wrong direction I hope you can give me some advice.

I have choosen the Task item as base for my custom item / Inspektors. I will replace the whole form region.

Now several fields of the task item solve almost the same purpose as I would need them in my Application but the names just don't

fit.

Ok, I can rename the Fields description on the Form, but what is with the explorer views. can I also rename the column titles?

Or should I add all fields I need as custom fields??

Best

Tom

You should be able to rename the column titles using the View.XML property.

BUT that won't affect any new views or any views that the user modifies to

add those fields. Those views will still use the standard names. Therefore,

if controlling the names of the columns in all situations is important, you

should consider using custom fields.
