After listening to our customers, we heard that people love the fact you can link Tables together to create relationships between the pieces of data in your custom app. For example, you can create Projects with linked Tasks.

Now when you are creating a Record, to create a new linked Record at the same time, simply click the New button next to the linked Table Field. Fill in the Fields, then click Save and both the Record and its linked Record will be created.

For example, when you are creating a new Task you can create the new Project the Task is for at the same time, rather than having to go back and create the new Project first!

No need to waste time remembering where the brackets should be, or what the exact syntax looks like.
