Hello,

This feels like a fairly simple question but perhaps not so.  I want to be able to have users select a record on Interface Designer, and then be able to click into that record to open up more information about it in the sidebar, as opposed to manually putting grids or fields from that record into the Interface page itself.  If I put the primary field connected to the record picker onto the interface page, it shows as text and isn't "clickable", and you can't make it such, or at least as far as I've found.  Any ideas?

Here's a quick snapshot of what I'm trying to achieve.

User picks an invoice, has access to the attachment and the invoice line items, but can't "click into" the invoice record to see other details.  I'd like a field right below the record picker that allows the user to open a sidebar for that invoice record.

Hello @Craig_Toohey we've built an app just for this! https://airtable.com/marketplace/blketWdmOlr98JMZl/sidesheet-link-generator

This app will generate each record's unique Sidesheet link for you so you can use it in a button on your Interface!  Your user can then click on that button below the record picker to open the Sidesheet!

You can even use it with the Airtable Automations "Run a script" action to generate links to the Sidesheet in your Interface automatically!
