I’ve read a couple threads on this but didn’t see an answer. When I open a Linked Record, the fields it shows do not directly correspond with any of my actual views from that table. I want to rearrange the fields for the Linked Records, but don’t know how to adjust if they don’t seem to be coming from one view. They are not coming from the first view in that table. Thank you for any help!

Is it possible that another user has created a personal view which is the first view, but that view is currently hidden from you?

This is an Airtable limitation. The field order ALWAYS comes from the first view under ALL circumstances, and there is no way to change this.

That’s not what I’m seeing though. Here is the first view in my Schools table

Here are the fields when I click on the Linked Record for Schools

They don’t match up, so I’m trying to determine how to change them.

That has to be it. Thank you!

You’re welcome! Glad I could help! :slightly_smiling_face: I would also recommend emailing support@airtable.com to ask them to improve this feature!

Does anyone know if this is the same for the mobile app? When I change the order of the fields in my first view, they change when accessing the linked record using the PC but when I open the android app all my fields are hidden and whatever I try I can't get the order of them to change. I can click on the dropdown "22 hidden fields" to show them but the order isn't what I need and I'd like to hide some fields and have others show.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

I am seeing the same issue as the original poster, but this is still happening even when my top grid view shows the correct order of fields I'd want to see on embedded cards as well. Any other solutions?
