How Do I turn OFF "Invalid Field Name" and "database Field Name" tag  in Excel

When using the "label" column in a Survey123 excel X-form the "Invalid Field Name" dialog box pops up EVERY time an edit is made to the label field. The error states you need unique values and no spaces, none of which are true for a label field. 

This causes significant downtime with any survey editing as the subsequent dialog box defaults to no, and not yes like it used to.  The error should be removed from S123.


The second issue are the yellow help boxes that get in the way of ANY editing of the fields of interest. They show the same misinformation that the Invalid Field Name dialog box does. 


The only time either of these messages are relevant is in the 'name' column. Even there they are not needed as the generation process highlights the errors.


Please advise how to turn these "functionalities" off.

Please advise if these issues can be scheduled for removal in the next build?
