After you Add Item there is no way when you go back and edit the Item that you can change/convert the Type (Login, Card, Identity, Secure Note) of that Item short of deleting the Item and reentering all the details over again. I imported from LastPass need to make Type changes.
Please provide a way to accomplish this.
The currently available import functiondoes allow for the item Type to be specified for each imported item — either using the "type" field in a .json file, or using the third or second column (for individual or organizational vaults, respectively) in a .csv file.
It seems to me that the issues reported by most users in this thread could be solved by conditioning the data exported from other password managers before importing into Bitwarden.
I think the problem for the larger listeners here is they did not know you should go into a .csv or .json file prior to the import. I came from Blackberry Password Keeper and would like to be able to switch the “type” of saved data to Card from Login too. But after one uses Bitwarden for a few months, and you then find out this file fix should have been done several months ago, it does nothing for the user. The other solution is to start over, making the changes to the .csv/.json files, which no one will do. Too much time invested getting the App up and running plus ironing out other kinks of Bitwarden so the data is like it was in the old program/app.
You wouldn’t necessarily have to start over from completely from scratch, but you could potentially export your vault, make changes to item types by editing the .json, purge your vault, and re-import the vault. The main issue with this work-around is that if you have attachments, those would have to be individually downloaded and re-uploaded (although third party utilities to automate the process are also available).
Considering the lack of movement on this after some years it may be a little pointless but I’m gonna add some weight to this feature request too. It doesn’t seem like it should be a big deal to implement but would definitely help a lot for certain workflows.
