I cannot remember how to do this and it seems to me it ought to be easy.
My database is very simple. Two tables: Tasks and Notes. There’s a Tasks table page with a link to editing the task record and also a detail view. On the detail view of the task, I’ve placed a Tasks table (below the fields that pertain to the currently active task record). Note records are connected to Task records from the perspective of the Note which I understand is the right way to do this (connecting child to parent rather than vice versa).
While I’m looking at a particular Note record in detail view, I want to be able to view and create connected records in Notes. I have the Notes table on the Tasks detail page, and I’ve got an Add Note record. But the note that gets added in this fashion is not automatically connected to the current task. How do I connect it to the current task automatically?
I’m 99% sure I’ve done this before but it’s been a while and I cannot remember how to do it now. Help please!
Added later: I have looked at a number of the Tadabase demo apps and can’t find any examples of this. I’m surprised because this seems like a pretty basic thing — adding notes to a parent record. It’s one of the things I love, say, about Todoist. Also useful in any CRM app, where you find the client then note your contacts with the client. Here’s an example that I threw together in FileMaker. I don’t expect it to LOOK like this in Tadabase but this shows the general idea:
