Retroactively updating documents when new field added

I just discovered the Document Title field ( and have been tweaking that to my liking.

However, for doctypes where I had to add the custom field title, all my original documents don’t have the title data set. Is there a way to “update title for all” so that my older documents get their title properly applied? Screenshot should explain:

Yeah should ideally work out of the box :smile:

But you can run an UPDATE query in your database for the title field.

I use your hosted version of ERPNext, so I can’t do anything directly to DB :frowning:

Thanks for being a customer :smile:
