This extension basically copies a value from field A to field B. Which makes it possible to add a linked record to a form submission, without showing all of the existing linked records you have in your base. The extension will link the record if it matches a given value (email, name, phone, etc.) that’s submitted with the form. If a record with the same value does not exist, it will create a new record for it.
This extension is ideal for those trying to link form submissions to a linked table by matching a name, phone number, email, etc. To make linked records show up instantly, you can use the form redirect URL to trigger the extension webhook.
You will see that the new record will automatically be linked in this view a couple of minutes after your submission.
When a text field entry matches multiple linked records, which one will be used?
The oldest one. This extension replicates the same behavior from Airtable when you copy a value from a text field to a linked record field.
