Understand how to rename record types

Records are an integral part of any CRM and their default names will appear almost everywhere you look within Copper. Though our default record names are common across many verticals, there may be instances where it makes sense for your organization to rename the various record types to better suit your specific industry.

To access Record Types, start by navigating to Settings > Customize Copper > Records Types.

Start by choosing the language you’d that you’d like to rename record types for. The default is English, but you may select a different language from the dropdown list.


Next, click the pencil icon on the right to start editing the particular record name of your choice.


In the edit box, you’ll be asked to define both the singular and the plural version of your new record name.


When you’re finished, click “Confirm”. The page will refresh, and once it’s loaded, you’ll see your new record name appear in place of the default.
