Support Related Entity Lookups

In a canvas app if I attempt to get an attribute of a related entity like so:

 

Entity1.Entity2.Name

 

The value will be blank regardless of the value of Entity2's name value.  

 

The syntax editor correctly identifies that "Name" is a field of Entity 2, but displays no warning that the value will not be retrieved.  Even trying to get the id of Entity2 results in a blank value, despite one existing on Entity1.

A workaround is to create a flow that will retrieve the value I want, but this is far more work than simply accessing the value through the "." operator and requires a lot of boilerplate code.

This seems to happen once a record is moved into a context variable and a related entity hasn't yet been retrieved.
