Custom email alerts missing data list fields

When creating an ad-hoc query and saving it as a data list, Application Details fields default to visible. If you click Edit Data List, the Application Details fields are flagged to not visible. If you save and close without changing the fields back to visible, the fields no longer display for the data list and disappear from a custom email alert.
We’re currently evaluating this issue for a fix in a future patch or service pack.

Workaround: Make sure you change the output fields back to visible and save before closing.

Steps to Duplicate

1. Make a ad-hoc revenue query
2. Add Application Details\Application and Application Details\Designation Name to "Results fields to display"
3. Save query as a data list and allow this datalist to be used for feed alerts
4. Save and close 
5. Go to Administration -> Application -> Shell Design -> User-defined Data Lists -> Select the data list in question
6. Click Edit and go to the "Set save options" tab
7. Observe that Application Details\Application and Application Details\Designation Name have the Output type of "None"
