Hello!

We have a table that our team uses to keep track of tasks. 

I have another table in a different base where I keep track of our email newsletter schedule.  

  • Base 1: Table = Tasks
  • Base 2: Table = Newsletter Calendar

I want to be able to create a task for each newsletter and use the two-way sync to link the tasks back to the newsletter calendar. 

I've created a shared view in the newsletter calendar. 

What I'm stumped on is how do I add each of the newsletters as a task record in the task table. 

Is there not a way to import records from a synced base into an existing table?

Currently, you can't have some rows synced and some rows not synced in the same table. You can have some columns synced and some columns not. To achieve a multi-source sync, all sources need to be synced into the final table. I haven't tested multi-source with 2-way yet but it would be a cool experiment!
