    Special characters such as &, or hebrew/arabic characters will brake google spreadsheet integration.

    The problem is that google spreadsheet integration gets broken when people uses special characters such as &  , I would also think you should avoid the use of () -


    Rather than having that label , I would recommend you use the sub-label feature to show  Name Age and other parenting attending

    At a any rate, I am escalating this problem to 2nd level
