Relate Field for Meetings Module (Listview)

Hello everyone!

 

I would really appreciate some help on the following topic:

 

I want to see the contact from whos detailview a meeting was created in the listview of the meetings module.

Since I have already done a few dozen relate fields and calculated relate() fields, I thought this would be a simple task.

I have tried the following:

1. Adding a textfield with a formular "relate($contacts,"full_name"))", I have also tried the $contact_parent module as well as trying to display different columns like "first_name".

2. Adding a relate field to the meetings module with a realtion to contacts.

3. Adding a 1 to 1 relationship to the meetings module and adding the new field to the layout

 

All of these 3 options have the same result: no entries are shown in the listview of the meetings module. (I have added every option to the listview of course).

 

In my mind this should be easily possible: When checking the columns in the database table "meeting" there acutally is a column named "contact_name" which is also filled with the correct data I'd like to display, however this field does not appear in studio.

 

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Work-around by creating a field temporarily which is available for mass update, update it with no values and the relate field gets populated....it is getting really tiresome finding these work-arounds when this is just a standard feature.
