Group names with special characters

  1. Hi,

    I just found a problem with GF and MailChimp groups. The good thing is that I also found a workaround.

    When you define a group name in MC, it allows you to use "special" characters. When you create the feed, the groups appear fine. However, when you select one with a special character, the fields to select the condition don't show.

    As soon as I changed the group name from "Básico" to "Basico" everything worked fine.

    Thank you.

  5. I just heard back from one of the developers. They will have to do more research to troubleshoot this problem. I expect to hear back from them on Monday. Thank you for your patience.
