How to solve the forward slash sub folder glitch in Capture One 10.2

If you've recently upgraded to Capture One 10.2 you may have noticed that you can no longer process to multiple sub-folders using the forward slash, since the character isn't allowed in the Output Location, Sub Folder field. This recently threw a major hitch in my workflow.

Fortunately, I recently had a chance to chat with Phase One's David Grover about this issue and the solution is simple, yet unintuitive: to get a forward slash, use a backslash. He said this is actually a bug that will be fixed in the next release, but until then, using a backslash will do the trick.

 Until the forward slash bug in 10.2 is fixed, use a backslash to process into multiple sub-folders.
