I built some scripts a while back using the airtable python API wrapper.  I was able to create new records in a table with linked fields using only the string value of the linked record. This was very helpful since I could upload records to 'Orders,' for example, and Airtable would accept a string, for example a Product SKU, to designate which Product to link to.

Since updating to the more recent pyairtable wrapper, I'm not able to do this anymore.  I need to know the record ID of any record I want to include in a linked field.  This means extra steps.  Is there a way to use strings instead of 'array of record ids' as the value for linked fields?
