Change name of default field ''Name'' SharePoint Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need to change the default fieldname or default field itself. I thought this was not possible. Tried to change the name in SharePoint designer also. 

    Does anybody knows how you can rename this default field ''name''' in a sharepoint library'?

    Thanks.

  • Hi, Hoegen,

    Per my test, In SharePoint Online you cannot change the title of Name column. As workaround, you can try to use MS flow/workflow to update a new column with the value in name filed. Then edit the view to only show the new column instead of the old name column.

    Best Regards
