I’m having trouble finding any info about how to retrieve the records contained in a linked record field. In the custom apps there’s a function called .selectLinkedRecordsFromCell, but I’m not seeing something similar in the scripting app documentation nor anything else about how one might do it. Thanks

You have to query the linked table, then get the record object by ID. The field value for linked records fields will return something like: [{id: 'recxxxx', name: 'xxxx'] so you’ll want to .map() that to get the ids of each linked record.
