I’ve found it extremely useful to have records with autonumber and “Title” field, while setting Name to something like "tn"&ID&" "&Title (where tn is an abbreviation for table name). Very helpful to distinguish events with similar agendas, etc.

However, this means I no longer can auto-fill the name when creating records as a linked record field, from calendar view etc. and each time have to expand the record and fill it second time.

Can I somehow fill a different field when creating the record?

Click on that link that says “Expand Record”, and you can type in all of your fields there.

Please read my question more carefully. :-1:

Oh, I didn’t see that. I would add that as a feature request in the #show-and-tell:product-suggestions category. I agree that this would be a very handy feature!!
