Filter by Airtable Views

You can limit the Airtable Linked Records displayed by specific Views you’ve created in your table in Airtable. Views in Airtable allow you to filter, group, and sort your records in various ways. You can then use those Views to display records in On2Air Forms.

  • Choose the View you need to use as a filter
  • Now, you can click the Find Existing button on your Linked Record field in the form and see the newly filtered records available.

Filter and Limit Records with Parent/Child Relationships - Field Dependencies

You can limit records displayed based on a previous field selection by using Field Dependency Filters.

Example: You have a States field and a Cities field. You want the form user to choose a State, then limit the Cities displayed to only those in the chosen State.

If the user chooses California, limit the Cities field to only display Cities in California
