Track Room Items

Did you mean: 

I want to track what items are in which room. What is the ideal solution for this? For now, I am not interested in the quantity, but only that a certain item exists in a room or not. For the items exist unique categories, namely furniture, tool and machine.

This is what I have created so far, two tables ‘Room’ and ‘Interior’:

Currently, I do not have a junction table. I created three columns in the ‘Room’ table based on the unique categories and linked it to the ‘Interior’ table. I restricted the link per view (depending on category).

Is this the best possible way to present the information I want? Or do I need a junction table and if yes how do I implement it?

Hello! Would you mind re-sharing your base? It isn’t appearing well for me

It is not appearing well for me too. This seems like a bug? I just copied the link.

Hi @Timm218,

I think this is a good setup, as long as it gives you the data that you need.

One issue I have is that it seems not to be possible to automatically order the linked items alphabetically in the ‘Room’ table? This is problematic when I want to check if I have already added a certain item to a specific room.
