Change reports and cards list to show custom field and list names

I know reports and card lists can be modified to include these columns. What I'm asking, is for the column heading/field names, to show the customised labels we assign in settings, rather than the generic "Custom Field 1".


Another user suggested this years ago ( One would expect custom field names to be visible on reports instead of "custom field name 1". That is not helpful at all.


I thought this might be a nice workaround: but while it shows the data, the headings are still "Custom Field 1".


What is the point of creating a custom field name if it can't be viewed anywhere except on the card itself?


The last comment on the first link was from a user who said they were able to show the custom labels by creating a custom report from scratch. I haven't been able to replicate that...


Please change this.

This feature was working for us until 10mins ago when editing a Custom Report.

It was showing the Names we applied to Custom List & Custom Field.

Now it has reverted to MYOB Titles "Custom List No 1" etc


Does anyone know how to fix this?
