      Solution

      The solution is to add a script to your template that changes a field name. This solution works for all pages except targeted actions.  See the next section for that.

        Here are some steps that you can use:

      1. Edit the template used by the pages that need to change.  If you have only one template, edit that.
      2. Use the browser search tool to locate the </head> tag.
      3. Insert a blank line before the </head> tag.
      4. Copy this text:

       

      1. Paste the text into the newly inserted line.
      2. Change the values of the currentFieldLabel and newFieldLabel variables as shown in the pasted text.
      3. Save the template
      4. Test!
