Dynamics 365 Attribute Manager

I needed a way to change the type of field from integer to text. Since dynamics will not allow you to do this without recreating the field , I had to look for other options as I would like to keep the data.
Came across Attribute Manager in XRMtoolbox with the best disclaimer I have ever seen

Attribute Manager BETA!!! – Allows the addition/editing of attributes, including renaming and changing Attribute Types. This will eventually replace the Local to Global Option Set Converter. This is not production ready! It is released with exactly zero warranty or support. If it deletes files or kills your family pet, you have been warned. It might work great, and it might not. It hasn’t been tested against all CRM versions and entity scenarios, but it works on my machine/environment for the tasks that I have used it for.

Filled me up with confidence. I mean I don’t currently have any pets but I’m still worried as to any animals that may be harmed by me using this tool 😛 .. Will experiment with this tool and hopefully have another post with its performance soon
