Data mapping

This setting allows you to customize a user-friendly name of any field you set up in your form. mapping

For example, a field in your form may have a name like "qwerty123" to protect it from spam bots but the field is actually used to collect "Last Name" of a submitter. In order to rename such fields you need to receive at least one submission, then select a field name you want to rename and enter its new user-friendly name into text field on the right.

New field name will be displayed everywhere: in the list of submissions and exported data.
