Given a list view with several columns: ID, First Name, and Last Name. Let’s say the “ID” column shows an ID number as a hyperlink that points to another form. The list view’s filter only shows options for filtering on the First Name and Last Name columns. Why can’t I filter on ID too?
I hadn’t. Not really. Until today.
I’ve a client who’s forcing me to learn — my main contact isn’t familiar at all with K2, so I’m getting asked lots of questions. Today, he wanted to give a person access to the K2 Designer. I had no idea how to do it, but I offered to dig into the server’s configuration files to figure it out.

I’m working on re-creating a SmartForms application for a client — which was already in progress when I took over for another engineer — when I bumped into the exception described in the the title. This application was deployed from another environment.
