Multi-select field is not retrieved in Mobile-Offline mode

I have a form of an entity (Daily Report) in which I added a javascript webresource on the OnChange property of a date field, this webresouce function is to check if the selected date is a weekend or not, and if it is a weekend it will popup an error about it. the weekend setting is configured on another entity (Configuration) as a multi-select option set.

Both entities/tables are enabled for Mobile Offline and included in the Mobile-Offline profile.

in the webresource I am using the (Xrm.WebApi.retrieveMultipleRecords) to get the record that contains the weekend setting and here is the full code:


function CheckWeekend(executionContext) {
    'use strict';
    var formContext = executionContext.getFormContext();
    var reportDate = formContext.getAttribute('drm1_reportdate').getValue();

    if (!!reportDate) {
        var d = new Date(reportDate);
        var DayNum = d.getDay();
        var Weekends = [
            { Num: 4, Value: 684100000 },
            { Num: 5, Value: 684100001 },
            { Num: 6, Value: 684100002 },
            { Num: 0, Value: 684100003 }
        var SelectedDayRecord = Weekends.find(elem => elem.Num === DayNum);

        if (!!SelectedDayRecord) {
            var SelectedDayValue = SelectedDayRecord.Value;

            Xrm.WebApi.retrieveMultipleRecords('drm1_configuration', "?$select=drm1_name,drm1_weekend&$orderby=createdon&$top=1").then(//
                function success(result) {
                    // perform operations on on retrieved records
                    var record = result.entities[0];
                    var weekendstng = record.drm1_weekend;
                    if (weekendstng.includes(SelectedDayValue)) {
                        var ErrorWeekendReport = Xrm.Utility.getResourceString('drm1_DialogLocalizations', 'ErrorWeekendReport');
                        var errorOptions = {
                            details: 'The selected date is a Weekend day, please select another date!',
                            errorCode: 404,
                            message: ErrorWeekendReport,

                            function () {
                                // perform operations on error dialog close

                function (error) {



the problem that when I go in offline mode the Xrm.WebApi.retrieveMultipleRecords does not recognize the (drm1_weekend) field because it is a multi select field type, so is this a known limitation? or is it a bug?

is there any workaround this issue?
