I am creating an Airtable form with a drop-down option. Now the options in the dropdown are the entries of a different table. It looks like this:


When I open the form, it shows the IDs, not the names of the Hotels:


Is there a way to control which fields of the other table are being displayed (i.e. not just the IDs) ?

It will only show you the primary field value from the linked table, so you could make your primary field (in that linked table) a formula field which combines any of the other fields that you’d like to see.

Also, please be sure to email to ask them to please give us the option to show ANY field value that we want in a form’s linked record fields, not just the primary field.
