Replace the "Dropdown field" without delete value



I have a custom fiel with "Dropdown field" with 22 "Name" and "Value"
Now I need to replace the "Dropdown field" with a "Checkbox field" (OR checkboxlist field OR radiolist field).
The problem is: If I keep the same "Name" and "Value" in the NEW field how not delete the data acquired by my subscribers?

Really thanks.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work like that, you cannot change the type of a field, once it's been created and it started receiving data, that data will always be associated with the field.
Your only option would be to export the data, then create your new field in mailwizz, then edit your CSV file and give the column that contains your data the right name, then import the csv file.
