Hey guys,

any ideas why my summary fields arent working? It's just displaying the default columns for the DataObject.

class Customer extends DataObject {
	public static $db = array(
	public static $indexes = array(
		'Email' => 'unique'
	public static $has_one = array(
		'CustomerGroup' => 'CustomerGroup'
	public static $summary_fields = array(
		'Name' => 'Name',
		'Telephone' => 'Telephone',
		'Email' => 'Email',
		'Created' => 'CreatedText'
	public static $casting = array("CreatedText" => "Text"); 
   public function CreatedText() {
      return $this->Created;

class crmAdmin extends ModelAdmin {

	public static $menu_title = 'Customer Relationship Manager';
	public static $url_segment = 'crm';
	public static $managed_models = 'CustomerGroup';

Your managing the 'CustomerGroup' class but your object classname is Customer?
