Multi-Select change to single select

I have done an almost 2k record CSV import.

I want to adjust a custom field form a Multi-select to a single select, so I can set that field as the ‘color’ option in calendar view.

Can this be done easily?

@Sunday_White,

You won’t be able to alter the type of the custom field. If you don’t want to re-import into the correct field type, create a new single-select custom field, then in list view you could sort by your multi-select custom field, then multi-select up to 50 rows at a time and mimic the values in the new field, repeat 20 or more times. It sounds like a lot but you can be done in a few minutes. Then remove the multi-select custom field if you don’t need it.

Hope that helps,

Larry

I was afraid that would be the way, and I reverted to cleaning up my CSV and being more particular at mapping on upload.

Also - Apparently, somehow, Airtable was allowing ‘start dates’ to be later than ‘due dates’ - so I needed to go back and find/fix flip flopped dates so they would load correctly. (vs a text field)

Thank you!
