How Do I Change the official name of a Free-Space Profile?

+5 votes

I created a free space profile but needed to rename it. However, I notice it is still named the original name on Category pages. How can the name be changed to the official name? It's an organization that had two names and I need to reflect that in the name too. I can't seem to link to it in the ID/URL area, so here is the link: The Laura Dester Children's Center

Hello Janettee.

There is no a "one-step" way to "rename" a Free-Space profile.

There are two steps required to accomplish that:

  1. Create a new Free-Space profile with the final name you want.
  2. Use this form to merge Space:The Laura Dester Children’s Center​ into Space:(New Free-Space profile full name)

(Please post any issue you may have in merging the Free-Space profiles)

The reason you are seeing the old name in category lists is because it is still named with the old name in the URL.  You have to create a whole new page and merge the old one into the new, just like Ruben says.
