The issue has been tested on recent version of SuiteCRM(7.7.4) and it appears.
We label this issue as a bug.
@adminibt , thanks for raise this issue.


Thanks for the update!

As it has been logged on github, i’d recommend following it on there, as you will be able to track its progress as a developer investigates.

In the mean time, the user “slalji” has posted the following workaround on the github issue:
Meanwhile I made the adjustment in the database. Table name fields_meta_data

You may wish to try this in the mean time.
