Challenges with picklist values when record types are used with Skuid and Salesforce’s Summer ‘17 Re
Please be advised of an issue with record types when using Skuid and Salesforce’s Summer ‘17 release. As of Friday May 5th, only sandboxes and preview orgs are running Summer ‘17.

Check https://status.salesforce.com/status and click on your instance to see which version of Salesforce your instance is running.
Log in to your org and look at the logo in the upper left hand corner.

What’s Being Done About This?
Our product engineers are aware of this issue and working hard on a patch for this issue. We are hoping to get this patch out to all of you in the next few days. We will update you as soon as that is available.

That may mean needing to add a N/A value to the original picklist and selecting that for the record types where that’s the only valid option.
