Bi-directional relationship fields based on posts do not report field values in the dashboard when one of the posts in the relationship is not published.
add to pods/classes/Pods.php line 1127
$params->params['where'] = '
post_status IN ( "pending", "publish", "draft" )';
Ideally, a filter would be used here. I'm not sure if this is a bug - other custom fields report their values in the dashboard even if the post status is not "publish", why should relationship fields be any different?
