Kanban grouping using link fields

Very useful. Please do.

In this use case auto-collapsing empty stacks would be useful.

Can’t believe this or the ability to use link record or lookup for single select dropdowns. The ONLY thing keeping us from using Airtable for operations, CRM, and project management.

Very important feature.

For me the main thing about airtable is the kanban view, linked to table
Because this feature is missing, I need to choose between

  • kanban
  • stats (rollup per category)

If I choose for stats without kanban, I can just use excel.

If I choose for kanban without stats, I am very lacking and would need to use excel anyway.
This is a serious lack of functionality for me.
And it would mean a lot of juggling to keep both in sync, which may introduce errors.
So not an option.

Please add this.

I was also surprised to see this feature wasn’t already available. I would like to create stacks of Projects, stacked by Client and then sorted by Due Date in order to track planned social media post content that is in development, and easily determine which items to work on next for each client. This seems like a big breakdown in what is otherwise a main selling point of Airtable - the flexibility to access and present the same data in different configurations and for different purposes. The inability to organize the Kanban view by linked fields effectively segregates it from the whole.

I was building my sales pipeline and the natural way to stack it for me was a linked field… and since there are other values related to the opportunity stage it would be a very valuable feature!

Another vote for this feature please. This is a natural extension any user is going to want to do, and I honestly can’t understand why it wasn’t just baked in in the first place.

Please it’s time to do it :sunny: !

I need also to create Kanban stacked from linked record (and other field like text). Yes it could lead to huge Kanbans ! But it’s our problem not yours :wink:

This is really needed! Can’t use integromat for such simple use cases…

For this we need:

  1. Either make select fields based on formula.
  2. Make gant charts based on formula/linked fields

I sort of found a work around for this. You can use the matrix block. Choose your real lookup field for the columns. Then choose a second lookup field for the rows that has the same value for every record in the table. In my case I made a new table called ‘Matrix’ and then added a Matrix field to my table.

The downside of this is that you can’t customize the cards. They only show the primary field.

+1 for kanban by link fields (when multiple selection is disabled)

Also, if you use a lookup field to look up the value of a single-value field in the linked table and the link is single-valued, the lookup field is effectively single-value, so it should be usable as a single-select field for a new kanban view.

+1 Yes PLEASE to single select, linked records that can be used in Kanban!!
I produce large-scale, live events. I create large contact sheets for the teams working on the project, all of whom I will not be inviting as collaborators on my project’s airtable. Without this, I cannot assign a task to a person on my contact sheet unless I’ve invited them to airtable as a collaborator.
