Identifying the event that happened most recently

Hi Folks,

I am creating a quasi-CRM in Airtable.

Every time I interact with a company I create a new event in an event table links back to a company record on the company table (“called JC Toothpicks on Monday”, “ate lunch with Pencils United on Tuesday”, “sent proposal to JC Toothpicks on Wednesday” etc).

Whats the best way to identify the most recent event at each company?

The long term goal is to be able to run through all our companies quickly and know what stage they are at and the last interaction (imagine in like a Kanban view of companies grouped by stage)

Thanks!
