I have 3 columes in my table formatted as such: A Linked record field + 2 look up fields from the linked record. (crossed out proprietary info)
this linked record field shows all clients that been accepted by this playlist. The client may show up multiple times if they have been accepted by the playlist more than once or for different projects. This is fine.
The problem then comes in the artist genre and genre/moods look up fields which reference multiselect fields from the a different table. The genre and moods fields will list multiselect values multiple times because of the multipile records that have been accepted by the playlist. I am trying to show unique values for these two look up columns, but cannot seem to figure out how.
This is interesting. I looked up an old base where I was able to get list of unique linked multi-select values. The system worked with a combination of a lookup field and a formula field with
ARRAYUNIQUE(). However, that base is now acting inconsistently. I have contacted Airtable support with the issue.
This would be so simple with a checkbox to 'split multiple values'. Official response from airtable and the suggested workaround is poor — create views for every multiselect item which would be super tedious!
I suggest visiting that support article and responding to the page with feedback about how poor this suggested workaround is and proposing to add a checkbox that splits multiple values into individual groups
