Smart Markers - Display list of objects with properties


I am having a difficult time representing a list child of an object (tasks):

with Smart Markers. The list is a child of a parent object. The other children display fine, but the members of the list do not.

I have attached some pictures to illustrate this. The properties “aa” and “bb” are not properties of the object.

If I use the expected Smart Marker (&=djr.tasks.nM), it displays the entire JSON object in the cell:

What is the proper format of Smart Marker to use for this scenario? I followed the example with Husbands and Wives, but apparently missed something. Have been stuck on this for a while now and would appreciate any help.


Could you please share current and expected output excel files with narrowed down code (runnable) for our analysis. Also see the document with example code for your reference:


Hello @ahsaniqbalsidiqui,

Here is a google drive link which contains the compressed Visual Studio project, the example files you requested, and some additional information.

Please let me know if you have any trouble accessing this share or running the program.




Thanks for the sample project with template file.

After an initial test, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned using your sample project with your template file. I found an issue when displaying JSON list objects with properties. It looks like nested smart markers won’t work when using with JSON objects. Anyways, we have to look into it. I have logged a ticket with an id “CELLSNET-46784” for your issue. We will investigate your issue soon.

Once we have an update on it, we will let you know.

Hi Amjad,

I’ve integrated the fix into our project, it seems to work fine. We came up with a solution that involves re-structuring the hierarchy of the JSON objects and creating multiple datasources.

Thanks again!
