As you can see from the image, I want to add a drop down option to multiple records. Is that possible? If not I need to manually select for a lot of records…

You could also enter the single select option for the first record, and with that field selected either:

  • Grab the dot at the bottom right corner and drag it down to auto-fill any other cells below it

OR

  • CMD/CTRL + C to copy the value, then select all the other cells you want to fill and CMD/CTRL + V to paste that same value into all the other cells at once

Hi @Vicky_Huang and welcome to the community!

It is not possible to get a dropdown within a linked record field. In my experience, if you know what to link by heart, starting to type and then “enter” is probably the quickest way.

Thank you so much! You just saved me hours of work :grinning_face_with_big_eyes:
