Hi everyone, I’m Carla – a software engineer at Airtable and I am really happy to share that we’ve added the ability to dynamically filter results in linked record pickers!  You can now limit the records that can be selected on a linked record field by configuring a filter based on the value from another field from the same record. 

For example, when assigning People to a Task, instead of browsing through the full table of People, you can now filter the linked records available for selection based on another field on the Tasks table, in this case we can use the value of the Skills Required field to filter the list of People to only those that have the relevant Skills:


How to configure

  1. On a linked record field configuration, toggle on the option to Filter record selection by a condition.
  2. Select a linked record field from the linked table and click the cog on the right to switch to a Dynamic condition.
  3. Select a linked record field from the current table, and Save.
