Bug with Cell Links?


Hi all,

I'm using Smartsheet Gov and cell linking out from one source sheet pretty extensively, and I'm running into an intermittent issue where the cell being linked to will return what looks like a data structure containing the element I want, instead of just the element itself, e.g. ["A"] instead of A. Here is an example where all the cells are linked to the same cell on a different source sheet:

It doesn't happen all of the time, and within the same sheet it can do both ["A"] and A. I'm assuming that it's an issue of the source sheet being referenced too often. I can work around it, but ideally this would be an issue that is fixed.
