Hello,

Here is a picture of my interface. I have a filter element which is linked to the list element. I would like the filter element to apply to the linked option when creating a new record in the list element so that the user can select/filter which options they want to add as a new record in the list element.  For example, I want the list of materials to be filtered by the supplier in the filter element so that when creating the new record in the list element, only the options for a single supplier (specified in the filter element) are shown. Although there are finite options and I could create a separate interface for each option (the supplier in the filter element), I would like to avoid doing so and having a more dynamic (1 page) interface).

I need to attach/sync these linked record permissions to the filter element i.e. the user needs to be able to control the linked record permissions through the filter element.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Look into interface forms & conditional fields, this may help you do what you need.
