While the ‘limit record selection to a view’ feature exists, it doesn’t solve my problems. It would, however, if field order and visibility were retained.
Linked Records currently display all of a record’s fields. And the order of those fields is determined by the top-most view in the view list for the linked record’s table. None of this amounts to a very customizable solution for bases that make use of multiple linked record columns for a particular table.
For example, here is a view:
In another table, I have a linked record column with ‘limit record selection to a view’ set to the above view. And yet, all of those hidden fields are visible:
Instead of creating linked record columns, you can generate links to records - which can be associated with a given view. For example:
Table A record_id (formula)
Table B table_a_record_id (lookup) table_a_record_link (formula)*
