I am constrained to link to the same table due to the requirements from the flowchart block.
The problem is that as far as I understand, to make a self-link field accepted by the flowchart block, you have to you have to assign the values manually?

In my case right now, this self-linking field could be easily automated if I could use a formula field. But again, this it is not picked up by the flowchart block.

Welcome to the community, @Rill! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: Formula fields only modify their own output. They cannot affect the contents of other fields. That aside, you don’t have to manually make all the necessary links. The Flowchart block doesn’t care how the links are made. You could write some code in the Scripting block to make the links once you’ve got the rest of the data in place. Another option would be to use an external integration service like Zapier or Integromat.

If you’d like help setting up either option, post a request in the #developers:work-offered category.
