Bug Description

Template field transform settings, once chosen in the selector, are sticky, even when it invalidates the datatype of other entries in the template editor. It travels as a sticky setting, despite not showing in the Transform box, into other sources being used to build the template until the person writing the report goes to an entry of the same type as the original was selected when the transform was chosen and deselects the transform. It should not be possible to apply a date transform to text or IDs or an average transform to text or IDs when writing/editing a template.

I've observed this behavior since 3.0. Currently using 3.1 on Chrome.

This is so aggravating, so I'm adding heat. I constantly forget that I need to double-check my transforms and then my report fails.
