What happened? If I file out „Others to inform“ on the submit page it does not take it to the database/ does not save it. I have to add afterwards after I logged in.

What did you expect to happen? That it does save it.

What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue?

Just double checking:

Did you include email addresses with the Others to Inform? Currently we only persist a name for this field if an email address is included.


Hi Jason, yes I wrote three email addresses in the field with a comma in between.

I have confirmed the issue and filed this as ticket WB-1179. We’ll follow up here.
