@inventobd please don’t rename doctypes. Doctype names are hard coded in the system code at places. Like in your case the Doctype name is still Product Bundle in the code in config/ hence it does not show up in the selling module. It might be accessible via the awesome bar


Thanks for your quick response . But I don’t want to rename it . I just want to change the label . As I have searched in forum I have seen several people said it possible . As I saw its also available in customize section that’s why I tried . How can I change the label / name of any doc-type so user can understand it well ? Is it possible ? Please help

@inventobd i checked with my colleague as well, you cant do this at the moment. Check this tread as well Renaming doctype - #4 by nirjhar

Thank you very much for your clarification . Is there any plan to add this feature in near future ?


I have renamed a doctype and now everything is broken :frowning: Any help?

I renamed customer to agency…

Thanks Jason

Can you change the name back to Customer?

I did a bench update and it seemed to fix it… though the few customers I had are gone now.
