Money and Other custom columns can be edited to change the name at any time.  Attributes that change the format of the field cannot be edited after the column has been created.

Deleting Picklist Values

There are instances when Picklist values can grow too long over time. Some values may no longer be needed and it would be nice to remove them from the selection list.

Before proceeding with deleting values, be aware that when you remove values, if you later edit that field in an existing campaign that is using the removed value, you will not be able to add it back. However, it will not negatively impact existing campaigns using the field otherwise.

 

When editing the Custom Column, you can simply delete the values from the Picklist Values listing. Then press Save.
