Linked Table Viewer

The Linked Table Viewer View Type allows you to view a list of records from any linked table/linked record fields in Airtable.

Example: You have a Company Leads table linked to an Interactions table (phone calls, emails, texts, etc.). You can use the Linked Table Viewer to display a list of all the Interaction records from the Interactions table related to a record in the Company Leads table.

You can view all records in a table or choose a specific view. In the viewer, you can display or hide fields to show only the fields that matter most. You can add multiple Linked Table Viewer View Types in a single layout, customizing each one to display specific linked tables and fields.
