Hi developers,

there seems to be a bug in the WIP by Type dashboard widget. It seems to break when the "Type Label" is changed to anything but the default "Type". In the model attached, the upper part uses the default "Type" and the widget works. In the lower part I changed it to "OtherType" and it breaks.


Please fix asap. Thx

@Jordan Johnson Thx for the fix, but is there a workaround for it or do I have to make my own? Need this urgently in a project.
