If a child table, such as pm_project, is saved using the form designer, the parent field labels (sys_documentation) are changed to those of the child. For example, changing and saving the pm_project form causes the short_description field label on task to change from "Short Description" to "Project Name."

Steps to Reproduce

  1. View Labels list for task.short_description: 
  2. Open any Project (pm_project) record. 
  3. Configure > Form Design.
  4. Make a trivial change.
    For example, change the position of Category and Subcategory
  5. Click Save
  6. Refresh Labels list for task.short_description from step 1.
    Note that the label Short Description for Task has been replaced with Project Name.


Label can be updated directly through sys_documentation.

  1. Goto sys_documentation.
  2. Click New.
  3. Fill out these fields:
    • table = name of table
    • element = field setting label for
    • language = language code (en = english)
    • label = the label you want (example: number)
    • plural = plural version of your label (example: numbers)
  4. Click Update.
