Hi @Abdul

This sounds like a great addition. Would it be possible to do a video at all to demonstrate how this feature works?


Hi @silisols. We have an article explaining the necessary setup needed for the lookup field to show up as a valid selection in Portal Table. What are the required configurations to utilize the lookup field as a Portal Table? | miniExtensions for Airtable

Hi @Abdul,

Thanks for the link to the article. It has helped clarify how this new feature works - which is exactly what we need. We have 2 separate portals setup because we haven’t been able to tie them together in one portal and this solves that problem.

Great feature! Thank you. :slightly_smiling_face:


That is exactly what I needed, thanks for sharing.

The help article maybe could do with some more clarity by adding a real example maybe? It dives into a solution and the table names are very generic before explain “what we’re doing, and why”. HTH

i.e., you have customers, in each order they buy a music download. We want a portal which shows the music they bought in each order.

in the orders you will have a linked field to the items they bought. set up a portal to login on that table, then select the linked field as your table.

Thanks as always, DanC

Hi @dancourse. Thank you for your feedback. I will bring this up with the team.
