Hi folks,

I have embedded into a web page:

A table
Containing a lookup field
From a synced table - and it looks like this:

At the moment, expanding the record in the lookup field only opens up the one cell:

But I want it to open this:

Can this be done?

So many thanks for your attention.

Expanding a record in an embedded shared view works just like it does when expanding a record in Airtable:

You can either:

  1. Click once in a cell and then press the spacebar
    or
  2. You can click on the blue arrows in the left margin

Hi @ScottWorld - thanks for your reply.

This doesn’t do what I’m wanting to do, though.

Selecting the cell containing the items I want to open (circled in blue) and then hitting the space bar opens the record containing that field - circled in red:

When that record opens, the items I want to open (again circled in blue) are no longer available as synced records that can be opened; they are just non-editable text:

When I am in Airtable itself, I can select that cell, click the blue arrows, and open up a dialog box that allows me to open each individual record, and see all of its details:

But when I hit the blue arrows on the embedded version of the field, all I get is this:

Not clickable, no access to the information contained in those records.

Is there a way to set up an embedded table view so those records are accessible?

Oh, I see what you’re saying. Unfortunately, that is not a feature of shared views. You may want to submit this to support@airtable.com as a feature request.
