Move field to new tab

Is it possible to move an existing field to a newly created tab? This field already has data populated in it across many instances. I can't seem to drag and drop it into a new tab.

Would deleting the field and recreating it under a new tab with an identical id retain the existing field data or would we lose it?

Thanks for your help.

Hey @alexdkaminski ,

Yes, this is possible :slight_smile:

If you move a field without changing the API ID, you will keep your data.

The safest way to do this is to move the field in the JSON editor, like this:

// From this:
​
{
  "Main Tab": {
    "example_number_field": {
      "type": "Number",
      "config": {
        "label": "Example Number"
      }
    },
    "example_boolean_field": {
      "type": "Boolean",
      "config": {
        "default_value": false,
        "label": "Example Boolean"
      }
    }
  }
}
​
// To this:
​
{
  "Main Tab": {
    "example_number_field": {
      "type": "Number",
      "config": {
        "label": "Example Number"
      }
    }
  },
  "New Tab": {
    "example_boolean_field": {
      "type": "Boolean",
      "config": {
        "default_value": false,
        "label": "Example Boolean"
      }
    }
  }
}

Let me know if you have any questions.
