    Node with list view enabled shows ids

    When enabling the list view mode for a node and adding some properties in the list that are dropdowns or node pickers the list view shows the internal id of the dropdown instead of values and the node identifier instead of the node name. This is completely useless for users.

    enter image description here

    I have tried it even in the current last umbraco version 7.5.2.

    I have seen this reported as a bug:

    Is there any workaround?

    I have this problem too...


    It's kind of weird this behavior has slipped through QA for so many versions unnoticed, as it makes absolutely no sense to the editor...

    Yes, I've just spotted this issue when using multi node tree picker as well. In my opinion it should show the node name(s).

    Mads wrote a great article on how you can create custom list views which would allow you to do this

    An alternate "poor man's" solution to this, as I happened to discuss on the Umbracians Slack community yesterday:

    For the time being, what I do is create some label fields on the doctype which are updated via event handlers when picker content is changed, and I'm using those label fields in the list view. Side effect is that if you rename some "picked" document the change is not reflected in those labels (could be, but would be too expensive in performance) as well as the fact that you can't search the list on those fields.
