Modify Fields

How do I modify or delete existing fields? I am trying to rename and existing field .


I am finding this new version almost impossible to use. The old version was so easy, but this version has been designed by committee and /or government department. Just dreadful.

Hi Greg,

Just like the previous version, you can go into the Settings, and click "Edit Types" to edit, remove, or add record types and their fields. 

Yes I know that, but how can I modify/rename existing record fields?

Hi Greg,

Perhaps I"m not understanding your question here. In order to modify/rename existing and future record fields, you go into the Edit Types menu and you edit the record types you want to edit.


On iOS:

  1. Open and unlock mSecure 5
  2. Tap the menu icon
  3. Tap Settings
  4. Tap Edit Types
  5. Tap the record type you'd like to edit
  6. Rename or remove any record fields you'd like to
  7. Save


All records for that record type will then be updated to reflect your changes and any new records for that record type will also the new changes.

I have the same question. I have just imported all my data from another app as a .csv file, but the 3 fields I want to change are currently called Field 0, Field 1 and Field 2. On my iMac, the Edit Types is greyed out.


I think I have it figured out, have to select all items from left hand panel, not right hand panels.

Hi Ralph,

Thank you for contacting us, and I'm sorry for the issue you are experiencing. I'm not sure I understand what you mean. It sounds like some or all of your records were imported as Unassigned type records, and if that is the case, I don't know that you'll be able to change the label for the fields. Can you let me know if all of your records have Field 0, Field 1 and Field 2 for the labels? 


Also, in the left column of the desktop app, you should see a bunch of filters. In the Types section, do you see records for a bunch of different types, or are all of the records in just one Type, which is most likely called "Unassigned"?
