Is there a way when linking Record A to Record B that Record B can automatically be linked back to Record A?

absolutely need to be able to cross-link records in a single table

likewise, not being able to have bidirectional links in the same table is causing me a shiz ton of extra work.

+1 - we have had multiple instances in our base where this feature would have saved us a lot of time and effort

Really looking forward to trying this! I have zero formal knowledge of coding/scripting, but have reached my wit’s end trying to accomplish this with an automation—everything I’ve tried with automations looks like it should work, but fails and I can’t figure out why the inputs aren’t valid. You may have just saved me (and my company) many more hours of extreme frustration or manual input (or both). Many thanks!!

+1 this would be a super useful feature, I’m really surprised it does not exist yet. Seems like a no-brainer

Yes please, adding my support for this capability being built natively in Airtable without having to use scripting and automations
