Apologies if this is covered elsewhere (tried searching) or I’m misunderstanding, which is extremely likely – we are still in a trial period so very new to Monday.
OK, the ability to edit a form seems like such a basic requirement! Of all the systems we’ve evaluated, Monday is the only one that doesn’t allow you to edit form fields.
For example, say we have a field in a travel request form with a dropdown asking users to select what they want reimbursed (air travel, hotel, rental car, etc.). Over time, all of these choices, of course, are selected. Now we have a new policy: No more rental car reimbursement. You go to delete that choice and … it’s grayed out! Too bad; you’re stuck reimbursing rental cars!
Or say people select from a list of admin team contacts and one of those admins leaves the company. You get the idea.
I’ve been discussing this with your tech support. The first response: Any time you need to edit a form, just create an entirely new form! Ha! Terrible.
The only thing I can think of is pretty messy. Hide the existing field from both the form and board and create a brand new field. Is this really the only way? We constantly need to edit forms, so our forms will end up having dozens of hidden fields that we’ll need to scroll past, and our boards will have dozens of hidden columns. Are there other problems with this method I’m not thinking of? Not to mention that reading this forum, it appears that form fields can’t be duplicated and have to be rebuilt each time.
If I’m totally spacing on this, or there’s an add-on app or way to tweak this through the Developer Center, please let me know! I think this will be a deal-breaker and cause us not to purchase Monday.
