Hello all –
I’m working on an airtable base which will run an application process for organizations. I have one table called “Organizations” which includes info about organizations (ones that have applied and ones that haven’t) and another table called “Applications” which feeds from a Typeform which applicants fill out.
In simple terms here’s what I’d like to happen…check for matches, update matched records, create new record if there isn’t a match.
Here’s what I want in more detail:
- Script runs and checks for matches between the Organization table and the Applications table. A match is a record in the Organization table with the same name as in the Application table.
- For records that match across both tables I’d like to update the Organization table to reflect that the matched organization has an application in the Applications table. (Can be a check box or linked record, doesn’t really matter)
- For records that don’t match I’d like to create a new record in the Organizations table with the application organization’s name and info from the Applications Table.
Any idea how to approach this script? Thinking I need to somehow iteratively search for matched records and then use an IF statement to update or create a record in the Organizations table. Just stuck on the best approach so any ideas would be great.
