Is it possible to see the history of a field type?

#1

Hello,

I’m trying to find a way to see the history of a field type.

I have a field that i’m pretty sure used to be a ‘Single Select’ field, but it has now been changed to a text field. Because of this, we’re getting duplicate values with misspellings, extra spaces, etc.

I’m trying to find out who changed it so I can review with them and explain why it should be ‘Single Select’ ( and possibly remove their permissions :slightly_smiling_face:)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, Derek! :smiley:

To my knowledge that kind of history isn’t stored. Only the history of field content is tracked. I can see how tracking field type changes might be useful, though. Perhaps consider adding a request to the Product Suggestions category:

Thanks for the response Justin. I’ll definitely post something in the suggestions section.

Thanks!
