Finding all forms that use a particular field

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew a quick way to "audit" what forms use a specific field? My company is in the process of removing fields and consolidating them but I want to make sure I've replaced the field we are about to retire on all forms that use it.

Example - I've moved data over from field "A" to field "B" and am now ready to delete field "A" but want to make sure that I update all forms that use field "A" and replace it with field "B"...

Any tips would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Ellie Cary

Please move the thread to Products‌ (Move link will be at the right).  This isn't a support space.

There are 2 answers to this.

1. Optimistic: look at Used By 

2. Realistic: if you use the Forms 2.0 API at all to add hidden fields they will not be in Used By and there's no way to audit usage

Hi Ellie -

This is easy. Just go into Admin and click on Fields. Than select the field you are interested in and all the assets that use the field will be listed - including forms.
