When building a simple base of entities (Let’s say Peter, Paul & Jack), i add a column to indicate there’s a link between two (or more) of them. Doing this, i use a Link to another Record in the same base.
So when i’m linking Paul to Peter, i see Peter in the “link” column of Paul.
But no link appears with Paul appearing in the Peter entry.
Is there a way to link two entries in a simple bidirectional way ? It sounds so pretty simple, i can’t believe i have to do it twice for each link between entries.
Or should i use a graph tool instead of Airtable maybe for this kind of analysis ?
Unfortunately, this is one of the current missing features in Airtable.
Airtable automatically creates the recursive link for you when you link to ANOTHER table, but as soon as you try to link to THE SAME table, you don’t get any recursive links.
The first thing to do would be to email email@example.com and let them know how important this feature is to you. The more they hear from us, the more hope there is that they will address this issue.
