Hi there,
I am looking to automatically link a record from one table based on another cell’s linked data in a join table.

My setup is made for event management (contacts, events, organizations). In the events table, I want to link both contacts and organizations. One organization can have many contacts of course.

As I add a new event, I link it to many organizations. Can I make it so that the leads are automatically added & linked to that event? Does this require automation or am I missing something?

My goal is to create a list of contacts with email addresses for a specific event so I can send a reminder email. I want to generate a list of contacts with one email address per line to send better emails by merging first names.
