I’m not understanding this. Is this referring to the column name (e.g. “Related somethings”)? When you say column are you referring to the columns that exist in the parent detail view or the referenced child tables?

yeah, we dont know what was the problem and what was rectified by reading this update. Not sure if or not it is affecting to our app, just because of lack in detailed explanation.
To be fair.

I reported some unexpected behavior and was told it was in this update.

Previous behavior: When displaying a List of Refs column ON DECK, TABLE OR CARD VIEW, the column’s name followed by count would display. Now, the display name is shown.
