Custom field names display differently in the workspace than from their column names
Answer ID 4567   |   Last Review Date 07/08/2019

Why do custom fields in a workspace strip the "_" if they exist and capitalize the two words?

Environment:

Custom Fields, Workspace Designer

Resolution:

This is done by design in the workspace designer. 

Cause:

The workspace designer strips the "_" from custom fields if they exist in the column name and capitalizes the two words.

Column Name = cf_test converts to this in a workspace xml FieldId="C$CfTest".  This also gets displayed in the workspace designer when you view the details of the workspace object as (Incident.C$CfTest).  The "C$" is the way the application identifies the custom field.
