Subset of Linked Records Based on Conditional

I have a column of linked records. I would like to make a second column that filters those linked records based on a condition.

Example:

  • Table 1 Column A is a checkbox
  • Table 2 Column A links to records of People that are associated with the Business
  • Table 2 Column B should be a conditional subset of Table 2 Column A; linked records in Table 2 Column A should only appear in Table 2 Column B if the linked record has Table 1 Column A checked.

Any time a checked record is added to Table 2 Column A, it should automatically appear in Table 2 Column B. Similarly, any time a record is checked or unchecked in Table 1 Column A, it should be added or removed from Table 2 Column B.

From what I can tell, this is not possible in AirTable. Are there any creative ways to make it happen?

Hi Kuovonne, thanks for the answer. Rather than doing a rollup, I was trying to maintain a link from the second table to a subset of the records from the first. After further thought I realize that this doesn’t quite make sense in the existing paradigm so I think I will instead have to use these conditional rollups to generate a list of names of the records. Thanks.
