Hi everyone,
Just wrote a tutorial on how to get linked records. It covers two scenarios

  1. Simple display linked record details on the same page as the “parent” e.g Products listing with their associated suppliers
  2. Filtering the parent records by a specific e.g Filtering the product listing by supplier

Hope you find this useful.

This is nice, thanks.

I’ve changed my thinking on this a bit, and decided to retrieve the table where the linked records are, and then point to the linked records as and when I need them.

It makes less API requests, and does the heavy lifting upfront (which I’m caching the tables anyway), plus I need the rest of the data at some point.
