If i change my field label from this manage views tab available in web client will that be a problem?? I have created fields using python code but renaming it through the above method will cause anyerror ?? or is not a best practice to do??

-If the field value is changed with GUI and you try to upgrade the addon or use this module in any other place, the label modification is undone and view is shown as per the python code in the module/ addon. So while data-migration, you have to custom change the modification once again. Thus the work becomes tedious.

-No errors may come because of renaming at GUI, but not a best practice method.
