As we all know, linked records are a big part of what makes Airtable special. At the same time, we know they haven’t always been the easiest to use in the context of filters. Well, we have a new feature that’s been a long time coming!
Starting today, you have the option to choose specific linked records within your filters. You have access to 4 new operators:
These new operators are also available within automations when you create a conditional trigger, as well as in interface designer (in both dynamic filter elements & statically in the properties panel for an element that accepts a filter, such as grid, timeline, etc).
These updates are available for customers on all plan types and should be available later today, if you are not seeing these changes reflected, please try clearing your cache.
Hmmm… this still works for me. Does the original linked record field still exist in your table?
ok i still think all those things about everyone using a different version of the product but also… that was a lookup field not a linked record field. i was working very fast. so I’m sorry for yelling before I did all the investigation. lol I see now I just got a sneak peek at future filtering potential.
This is very exciting that this is coming soon for lookup fields! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:
Wait, what? Am I reading that correctly? Filtered look up fields? :eyes:
Very timely discussion! New filter options for lookup fields are rolling out today!
Is it correct to expect that “is” as a filter only shows records whose field exactly matches the filer input?
“artikel 2, artikel 3”
“is artikel 2” shouldn’t give any result
“contains artikel 2” should give a result
Hmmm… my filtering choices for linked record fields & lookup fields says “is exactly” (not “is”), and it works as expected.
Aha. I’ll give it some more time then :slightly_smiling_face:
