    Get Block list item label from multinode picker field value

    I have a block list component 'Quotes' which has a block list field containing a collection of 'Quote' items.

    Each quote item has a field 'Author' which is using an Umbraco Multinode picker (limited to a single node) which allows the editor to pick a page in the tree as the author content.

    I'm wondering if it's possible to reference a field from the 'Author' page in the nested block items label?

    E.g:

    Quote - {{ author.firstName }}
    

    Would would give an output like:

    Quote - John Smith

    I don't see anything in the documentation around this though you can do stuff like reading from the settings model.

    https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Fundamentals/Backoffice/property-editors/built-in-property-editors/Block-List-Editor/#editor-appearance

    I've done some digging to try to figure out what's actually stored when you use a Multinode picker set to a single item and it seems to store a ref to the page via string - see 'author' property:

    enter image description here

    So I guess {{author.firstName}} would never work as you need the actual author instance/object.

    Is there some kind transformation or helper method that we can use to get at the pages data via this field, or some other way of achieving the same effect?

    Thanks
