[Bug] Tag columns in tables do not support objects

I have a table with the following data:

    "id": 1,
    "name": "Some name",
    "category": {
      "id": 2,
      "name": "Some category"

The column 'category' type is set to be a Tag (Dropdown) and the Tag label is set to {{item.name}}:

The table is not showing the name:


Note: If the category is a string instead of an object everything works correctly.

Hi, please try {{item.category.name}}

In this case I'm getting this error:

I'm seeing the same thing in my project.

Hi @vangelov and @mattdaw, this is a bug on our end with our Tag Column type. Our engineering team is aware of the issue and is working on a fix. I can't offer any ETA for when we will be able to ship a fix but when we do, I'll update this post! In the meantime, are you able to use the Text Column type instead?


Thank you. For now I'm solving this by using a transformer.

Thanks for the update! I’ll work around it until there’s a fix.

I also wanted to point out that it doesn't seem to working if the initial table is empty. I tried adding a new row and the tags dropdown was empty. As soon as I added a single row it suddenly was populated
