Kanban grouping using link fields

Is there any way to use link fields for kanban stacks. It appears that only single select fields can be used, but I would like to use a grouping field that is a lookup to another table. As a simple example, I have a location field, which is a lookup field to another table, defining locations. I would like to use that as the grouping field in a kanban view. It looks as though the only option I have currently is to duplicate the field with a single select field, and then find a way to keep both in sync?

Many thanks for any help

Neil

Yes agreed + 1 for this feature. And agreed about Airtable not reading or not paying attention to the little things. Or reading these boards.

Nov 2016…It’s now July 2021! +1 for this feature. Would love to see a response on this thread for when it will be in the pipeline or why it’s been consistently deprioritized.

My theory- linked record groups in Kanban would allow people used them as a replacement for Collaborators, and then Airtable would lose money

Being able to utilize the linked fields here is feeling like a really big limitation to expand my data. Not sure if votes count… but for what its worth +1 from me…
