Request: updating names of rollup/lookup fields

Unless I’m mistaking, if you create a rollup/lookup field and thus get the name of the original field (if you don’t specify your own field name), that name isn’t updated when you change the field name of the original field your rollup/lookup field refers to.

I would find it useful to see the rollup/lookup field update it’s field name in such cases.

I can see that being a useful option, but not something that I’d want all the time. If I’ve chosen my own name for a rollup field, I’d like that name to remain intact if I change the field properties to pick from another target field.

We’ll meet in the middle and ask for a toggle option :slightly_smiling_face: :smiling_face_with_halo:
