Custom fields: Change field type from dropdown field to checkbox field

Hi there, 

We have a custom field which is a yes/no dropdown field, but wish to change this field to a checkbox field. 

 

Can I just change this in the system setting (so that all "Yes" will be "Checked" )? Or will this distort the information in the database (we have ~3000 records in the contact database. 

 

Thank you.

  • Hello o.ingier:

    Sorry to say, once a Custom Field has been created the type can not be changed or updated. 

    What you may want to do is create a new checkbox Custom Field, filter and bulk update the record. Once you've made all the changes to existing records, you can then delete the old dropdown Custom Field.
