My humble suggestion would be to use a single table for these records. They are all species of the same type of thing – “Locations” or something like that.
So instead of breaking them up across multiple tables sorted by type, and trying to sync them back with a mother table that contains all “Locations”, instead, just keep them all in the one (originally mother) table. Create a field in that table called “Type”, or something like that – this can be a Single Select field, for example, where you tag the “Location” record as a
So now, you are wanting to view them individually, which is why I’m guessing you separated them into their own tables – this is what “Views” are for in Airtable. Instead of creating new “Tables” to separate
hotels, you can create new “Views” in your “Locations” table to separate them (the “View” menu is in the upper-left corner of your Table interface). Use the “Filter” options on the view to show only
restaurants or only
hotels in that view.
Instead of navigating to different tables to see your segregated list of a particular type of “Location”, you will be navigating to different views within the one table.
Here’s a guide to using “Views” effectively:
I suggest this approach because I don’t immediately see any benefit you gain by having these items split out into their own tables. I’m fairly certain that anything you were wanting to do with separate tables can also be done with separate views. If you have a special case where only separate tables can get you what you need, then I can also provide assistance in using Automations to achieve syncing of tables in your base.
