Requires Linked SingleSelect/MultiSelect Dropdown, which can be restricted on the basis of any criteria. In particular I need Dropdowns, which offer a subset of choices based on the result of another dropdown/field.

For example, I would like to have a drop-down “LAND”, which gets the data from a separate table (LAND, REGION).

The table would then look like this:
COUNTRY, REGION
Switzerland, Aarau
Switzerland, Bern
Switzerland, Zurich
Germany, Baden-Württemberg
Germany, Lower Saxony
Germany, Saarland
France, Aquitaine
France, Brittany
France, Poitou-Charentes
…, …

A second dropdown “REGION” should then only show the regions matching the selected country.
Then the second dropdown should only show “Aquitaine”, “Bretage” and “Poitou-Charentes” when I select “France” as the LAND.

If I look up in the forums, this is probably a very popular wish for a long time. Is something like this available now and if so, how does it work?

Hi @Patrick_Blattner

Welcome to the Airtable Community! Thanks for sharing your request for conditional single select and multiple select fields.

Unfortunately, we don’t currently support conditional select options in a field. This is something we’re considering eventually supporting, but I don’t currently have a timeline for doing so.

I’d love to pass this feedback along to my team as a way we could improve the product further – thanks for surfacing it! Also, you can stay on top of Airtable product changes from our What’s New Page.

This has been the top feature request of Airtable for almost 10 years, but Airtable has never implemented it. 

Luckily, Fillout has come to our rescue. Dynamic dropdowns are a native feature of Fillout’s advanced forms for Airtable, which is 100% free and offers the most advanced forms available for Airtable. Fillout offers TONS of other advanced functionality that people have been dreaming of for years in their Airtable forms.
