I have a base that currently has a single table which is populated via an integration with Jotform. There may be more than one record per customer and I'd like to create a view which will only show the most recent submission.

I've got "last modified" as a field and I'd like to use that as a filter along with the customer's name.

Is it possible? If not is there a workaround?

Thanks

Hi Judith, think we're having a bit of a miscommunication, sorry!

The base and instructions I provided above are examples of how one would be able to get the most recent record, and you would need to modify it to suit your workflow

For your use case, you'd have a table called "Customer" which each of your Jotform entries was linked to, and you would create the rollup field on the `Date` value from the table that contains your Jotform entries there, does that make sense?

re: is it possible to link all the records in one go, and then, going forward, link them automatically as and when new records are created instead of having to link them individually
Yeap, you'd just copy the values of the column that currently contains your customer name (or other identifier) in the table that contains your Jotform entries, and paste said values into the linked field to the `Customers` table.  This would handle all your historical data

You could then create an automation to do this automatically for you moving forward

Yeap this is possible, although the way to do it is a bit complicated

I've set up an example here that you can reference that shows you how to get the most recent record out of all the records linked to a single record called "Rollup"

Creation / explanation:


1. Have all the records linked to a single record called `Rollup`
2. In the `Rollup` table, create a rollup field on the `Date` value from `Table 1` with the formula `MAX(values)`
- This will give us the latest date
3. In `Table 1`, create a lookup field to pull over the most recent entry date from the `Rollup` table
4. Use a formula field to check the `Date` value against the most recent date pulled in via step 3

For your use case, you'd have a table called "Customer" which each of your Jotform entries was linked to, and you'd use the same logic in the example above to set it up

Thanks for this, that makes sense. I have a couple of questions though

1. Have all the records linked to a single record called `Rollup` - is it possible to link all the records in one go, and then, going forward, link them automatically as and when new records are created instead of having to link them individually

2. In the `Rollup` table, create a rollup field on the `Date` value from `Table 1` with the formula `MAX(values)`
- This will give us the latest date -

Hi, now I even see that there is an option in the workspace settings to choose to leave the URL of the attachments as they are.
