What is the proposed idea/solution?

I would like linked records to be synced between tables in both directions. For example, I have one base that contains campaigns and another one that contains products. Products are linked to campaigns in the products base and while I can also link them in the synced product table in the campaigns base, I cannot make edits in the campaigns base on them.

How does is solve the user problems?

Allow edits on linked records between two-way synced tables.

How was this validated?

It's a big use case within our company to facilitate collaboration and increase workspeed while maintaining proper rights distribution.

Who is the target audience?

Everyone working with synced tables.

Solving that challenge is what landed me at Adobe for 2 years optimizing their workspace used for their Learn tutorial management and delivery system built in Airtable.

It's a matter of exposing the record id using a formula and properly execuing automatic updates to occur asynchronously. 

I can be reached for consultation.
