I'm using Airtable to manage school operations. We use Google Calendar to organize lessons for different teachers. I'm on a Pro plan.

There is a limit of 3 sync sources per table. The problem is that we have 4 different calendars and we need to have all the events in one table. Is there a workaround for this? I tried a lot of different ideas but nothing worked.

The workaround is to "daisy chain" the syncs. Have an intermediate base/table where you sync three of the sources. Then in your final table, use the intermediate table as one sync source and the last source. Syncing takes longer, but it works.

Why is this sync function limited to only 3 source tables? Daisy chaining seems like an incredibly suboptimal solution to this problem. Is there any other feasible work around? Is it possible to raise this limit?
