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

+1 here too, I have large list of items that have associations with projects, would be nice to see all these items sorted into separate cards by project name.

+1 for me. Why has this been requested for 6 years with no movement?

Super useful idea. Yes please Airtable - close out 2022 with this much demanded feature (and improvements to Page Designer :grinning_face_with_sweat: )

+1 !!! Why are we still waiting for this…for years?!
Pleeaaase bump this up on the roadmap.

I realize we’re dealing with linkages but it seems that pointers should be straightforward if perhaps this feature is limited to fields where linking to multiple records is not allowed.

Kanban is the quickest way in my experience to manually manage stages or queues, especially in facilitated group sessions. I have also found that Kanban is the easiest way for collaborators who are not savvy nor comfortable with grouped grid views to adopt and manage via the tool. (i.e. Kanban is more similar to tactile process systems). When time permits and the process use warrants, I have implemented some interfaces and automations, but we could have gained adoption much quicker if we could have simply employed a Kanban. It is critical to our team growth that airtable administrative time does not become a barrier.

Thank you for your consideration.
