For example, I have 2 records(threr’re 2 fields: title tags):

  • Org-mode: best note-taking software software, note-taking
  • how to take note? note-taking, study

If group by tag fields, it will generate 2 groups:

  1. software, note-taking
  2. note-taking, study

But I think it’s better to have a group for every single value:

  1. note-taking
  2. study
  3. software

Multiple values should not only be used in filter, but also in group!

That’s not true. There are SQL commands to group where mutli-values display separately. Since 1990s, there have been Non RDBMS that can do this too.

AirTable should provide this capability. It’s completely useless, in fact harmful, to create a false grouping like “note-taking, study” when this really should be two groupings.
