Lookup fields display ID instead of Name in the Console

Lookup fields are rendering differently in the Console than they do in our normal detail page. For example, our opportunity detail skuid page displays the Owner field as a Name (that’s how we want it), but when you pull up the same opportunity in the Console, the 18 digit iD is shown instead. Why does it render differently in the Console?

Hi Stephen,

For the lookup field in your skuid page, under the ‘Search’ tab, you can define the template under field properties example {{name}} in the Search properties and Search fields. Using this we can select whichever field you want to display to the users.


I am unable to reproduce what you are seeing. What version of Skuid are you running?
