Choosing which fields to preview when selecting records to link


When I click in the field to link a record, a panel pops up showing all the records from the other table that I can search through. It also previews some relevant fields for each record on the little card. How does AirTable choose which fields are shown here?

As you can see in my attached image, there are 4 fields being previewed. I would like to show a different field called “Category”, instead of the “Framecount” field.


It’s whatever the order from left to right of your topmost view. It will also show your hidden fields.

If you want to change it without editing your current view. Create a new view and drag it to the top:

Then in your case move the field ‘Framecount’ after ‘Scene’ and move ‘Category’ into that spot.


Great, that worked, thanks!
