It would be great if the base creator could in some way limit the fields that were able to have a linked record added to them, either by:
A) Adding filters to the linked record field dropdown
or more realistically
B) Having a dropdown in the field options that limited the View that the linked records have to be chosen from.
For example, imagine I have a base with a table in it called Products. In here are a load of unique products. Imagine that 100 are marked In Stock, and 400 are marked Sold. I have a filter on this view called ‘Available Products’ that filters on just the In Stock products.
Now imagine I have another table called Orders, where I take customer information and link to the desired product record.
If I could limit the linked records to the ‘Available Products’ view of the Products table, it would ensure orders weren’t being put against items that had sold.
