I have a link field with a one-to-many relationship.
The linked records have over 100 fields. I need to customize the 3 visible fields in the preview

Thanks for your help!
That’s a fantastic question. It only pulls from the very first view in your linked table. You can reorder your views to put the one that you want first.
(What this also means is that no matter how many tables/views of yours link to that “other table”, you will always see the SAME 3 FIELDS from that “other table” across your entire system. Which is kind of strange, because when setting up linked tables, Airtable even gives you the option to limit the record selection to a specific view. But when it comes to displaying those first 3 fields, it’s always the same 3 fields: first 3 fields from the very first view.)
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work that way anymore. Here are some observations:
Gonna have to take that back 😄
Airtable actually does use the first fields, but it also uses the view configured in Limit record selection to a view parameter now.
Edit: also hiding a field does hide it in the selection view of the other linked table later.
