Trailing Commas Break Predecessor Logic
Before the new Predecessor column type was created in the Critical Path update, Smartsheet would automatically truncate extra commas or spaces in the Predecessor column. Smartsheet no longer does this, and it not only "looks" bad, but if the column isn't cleaned of these extra characters, the Predecessor functionality for that row litterally stops working.
This ia huge pain for us, because do a lot of direct manipulation on the Predecssor column, and picking out the commas everywhere is something we don't want to start doing, after we have not had to for so long.
Is anyone else struggling with this?
