    Configurable List widget with blank heading in last two columns: "#2" text is displayed in the last column heading.

    Asked by Lifelongtherapy on July 02, 2015 at 10:15 PM

    I'm using a configurable list and in my headings I left columns 2 & 3 blank.

    But column three shows up with a #2.  I thought maybe it didn't like being blank so i put "_" and now I get "_#2"

    Hello Lifelongtherapy,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you. 

    I did check your form and I am able to replicate the issue you are having. I also tested the issue in one of my own form and I am able to replicate the issue you are having.

    In "Configurable List" widget, if you add last two columns with no heading (blank or no alphabet), then in the form's submission page "#2" text in heading is added in the last column. Please check the screenshot below:


    Let me report it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for your patience - This is now fixed - If you label column names with an underscore, #2 will not be appended. 

    Kindly check, and let us know if you experience any difficulty.
