Hello,

I'm wondering if there's a workaround to import data into linked fields. For example, I'm importing monthly salary information to a data table and the employee name corresponds to the primary field of a different table. Airtable only imports the non-linked fields.

Would it be possible to import the employee name as a different field then run a script to create the linked record ? Or any other ideas will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Hmm, if you're importing CSVs, the CSV Import extension allows you to import into linked fields

Otherwise, if the employee names are a 1:1 match to the other table, you could try just copy pasting the values from the employee name field into the linked field which would create the links immediately

Thanks Adam, I didn't realise this is so straightforward with extension !
