Batch create/update with new custom fields

Dear @lubos, I just discovered new custom fields inside a transaction are not editable through batch create and update since they don’t show the values inside the column. Is it a bug?

Are those the line custom fields or all custom fields?

This issue also affects the new footers as I have described here:

I hope that this is just part of the transition to the new style features and that batch create and batch update will eventually work with the new paradigm


I would add that they don’t work anywhere in the program, not inside transactions alone. I tried creating a new business and using the new custom fields and I was not able to use batch create/update for my customers/suppliers list. All I get is a single column with some cells containing the text Manager.Model.CustomFields

As happened many times for Manager, deep changes never come to an end leaving existing features broken forever.

I’m using the Cloud Edition and have recently implemented a custom number field for Inventory items and am experiencing the same issue. My existing custom fields (using the legacy method) have the correct values.
@lubos Can you have a look and let us know when a solution is available?
Thank you

You are correct. The New Custom field is a work in Progress. I suggest you use the Classic Custom Fields.

The answer was already provided, it is a work in progress so you need to use the classic custom fields. Quoted from pist by @twodogzz above:
