Ability to rename Collection slugs

When working on a project, often times a client may reach out asking to rename the collection slug for detail pages from say, "news" to "blog-posts". This sounds like a simple and easy change to the client, but it requires rebuilding the entire collection, re-adding content, rebuilding the collection page, re-building collection lists and then deleting all of the old pages. This is a painful process at this time and this update would save many headaches :)

    This is useful when you for example buy a template and want to change the english slugs to another language.

    if only to optimize for SEO later in the process - this is a must have!

    This has been requested repeatedly going back to the start of Webflow - I'd also take "duplicate existing collection with a new slug" to avoid having to re-build and re-enter data.

    It's mad, really, that this isn't possible.

    Just finished entering a bunch of data into a collection and now we need to rename the collection. So I have to delete the collection and start all over again. This is maddening. Why can't this be fixed?

    Can we get an ETA on this release? Working on a project now. If you said "2 weeks" I would hold off creating a new collection, listing, and detail pages. Thanks!
