Unfortunately partial delivery isn't good enough. We have a Market Segment field that appears on both the Lead and Account objects. The Lead field was assigned to the Global Picklist when it was set up, but the Account field wasn't. I just finished an extensive re-vamp to the Global Picklist, but I'm going to have to waste a lot of time doing the same thing to the Account field, because I can't apply the Global Picklist, since the field already exists.

promoting a picklist to a global picklist is a great feature and it works well if it is the first one, but if you are coming back to exsiting pick lsits that needs to be synced across objects we need to be able to change the value set from individual to global. would love to see this feature added!

The ability to upgrade existing picklists to global value set is truly appreciated! However, since duplicate picklist fields already exist (especially for Lead mapping) we really need the ability to change an existing picklist field so that it uses the new global value set.
For example, I have promoted a field that lives on Account to global value set. The corresponding Lead field needs to have the same options. I certainly can update the Lead list manually when I update the Account list - but just a bummer that I still have to do so. Any plans to work on that as well, Salesforce?

I agree with each and every comment here. This partial delivery is useless. For established orgs with picklists being used in reports, outbound messages, in sytem integrations, it's not only time consuming but risky to have to create new picklists to replace the old ones in all the palces that they're referenced.
PLEASE consider delivering the idea in the context that it was requested.

The partial delivery does not help :( our org has been around for over 10 years and as we are trying to clean it up this would be very useful and right now continues to take a lot of time and $$$$$$$ (salaries of users fixing it) to fix its so time consuming. Hopefully you guys have something better soon!

For an existing org, this "partial delivery" is of very limited use. Only helpful if you are setting up new picklists, that duplicate details in one, single, existing picklist. We have picklists dotted all over our org with identical values, that should be converted to a global picklist. However, setting up new fields, is more effort than it's worth, Those fields are in flows, validation rules, case assiginments, APIs etc etc. THIS IS ONLY USEFUL IF EXISTING PICKLISTS CAN BE CHANGED TO USE A GLOBAL PICKLIST. Please!
