So here’s my situation currently. I am working on an automated inventory of some tech infrastructure. Certain devices have a single serial number while others have multiple.
The multi-select type is nice but the values are typically a set of enum values that are already known. With the API, I’ve noticed I cannot define values in a multi-select field that have not already been created, hence when I attempt to create the record, it doesn’t work.
Is there a list/array-type field where I don’t need to have the values pre-defined?
Although you can create a linked record on-the-fly when creating the "parent’ record in Airtable’s native interface, you are correct that you cannot do so using the API.
