Renaming the Primary Key

Most of the people are familiar with the application probably used the standard Rename function. This function allows us to rename the primary key of almost any record. It is irreplaceable if a record was saved by mistake or simply needs renaming.
The function ensures data consistency, that is, all related records are renamed too. It can be accessed from the Record information form, which can be opened by selecting Record info from the right-click menu on any record:

When it comes to mass renaming, this function might be very time consuming as it would need to be run on every record. An alternative is to create a job that automatically runs through all required records and calls this function.

Thanks & Regards
