Edit field

  1. Sign in to Zoho One , then click Directory in the left naviomenu.
  2. Go to Users, then click Manage Fields.
  3. Hover over the required field, then click Edit.
  4. Make the required changes.
    1. In custom fields, everything except Field Type can be edited.
    2. In system fields, you can restrict the user from changing their details through their Zoho account.
  5. Click Update.

Effects of editing old fields

When an old field is edited, the changes made will be applied retroactively to the existing users.

For example, assume you had set the default value of the Shift Timing text field as "9 to 5". You add 10 users, all with the default value set for Shift Timing. If you then edit the field and set the default value as "10 to 6", all 10 users will display "10 to 6" as their Shift Timing.
