Description

It would be highly desirable to set types, that are multiple-choice to single-choice. So far this doesn't seem to be possible even when the data was entered solely as single-choice.

Update
At the moment a type can't be set from multiple to single use. To allow for this:
  • Add an option to switch a type from multiple to single if it isn't used multiple times for any entity
  • List entities using this type multiple to allow for data clean up so it can be set to single use

Thank you very much for reporting. Main reason this isn't implemented yet is that it would have to be checked (and shown) if this type is already linked multiple times to one entity. Nevertheless this is an important feature so I put it on the roadmap and an implementation draft below.

Implementation
  • Check if this type is already linked multiple times to one entity
  • If not, make checkbox multiple in update form editable so it can be deselected
  • Check again in backend before changing type to single use

To do
If a type is linked multiple times to one entity: how/where do we show it? And more importantly, where to provide a list of multiple linked entities to give a chance to clean them up?
