In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create automatic backlinks to your Airtable records that are in the same table.
There are times you want to backlink Airtable records to each other that are in the same table.
Airtable supports backlinks for Linked Records between 2 different tables, but does not support backlinks for Linked Records that are in the same table.
The ‘Same Table Linked Record Sync’ function in the On2Air Actions app will auto-populate the linked records that are in the same table.
You have 1 table that contains all Employees. You want to add a Manager name to the Direct Report Employee record and also show (backlink) the Direct Report Employee record on the Manager's record. The On2Air function automatically creates the backlink.
Automatic and Ongoing
- You can do this automatically and ongoing with the function in our On2Air Actions app.
This function will automatically link each record and continually create new backlinks whenever you add new record links.
Example: You add a new Employee and link to their Manager. The function will automatically create a backlink to the Employee in the Manager's record.
