View GUID fro MDA table drop down lists

I need a way to see the GUID's we associate to the dropdown values we create in the MDA.  I noticed when I try to do a PIVOT on a data set that contains one of these dropdown values, I do not actually get the STRING data back, but rather the GUID value.  This makes it hard to build PIVOT conditions around this data type.

My bigger goal is to align this around easy to configure Elements pieces, so while I could play with the rules and reporting to get me an answer, I need a faster and more repeatable way to get information from potentially multiple dropdown list values.

Under Dropdown lists in the Data Management of Admin, I'd love for their to be another column of data added to the Dropdown Lists screen.  I think that would solve my problem.

Actually, you should never see GSID (GUID) in any of the Data screens. You should only see String values. The id is supposed to persist internally and Reporting should obfuscate this information and show only String value to the User.

Are you seeing the IDs on Data screen in GDM?

Thats what I figured.  And whats strange is I don't see if anywhere else.  It is only in the rule results.
