Updating Tables

The Tables in your Gridfox Projects can be changed and updated at any time. The Table itself can be directly amended by being renamed.

See the help pages for Fields and Screens if you want to change the Field information or layout of Screens.

Renaming a Table

Tables can be renamed at any time. Changing a Table Name will update the navigation bar for everyone who uses the Project.

You can use either the Screen Editor or the Explorer to amend the names of Tables. Both methods are described below.

Remember that Tables have both a singular and a plural name. When you are making changes to Table names, check that both have updated as you expect.
