      Tricky contact list

      Post

      Hi, I'm having a problem with a contact list I'm trying to create.

       

      Now I'm quite new to FM.

       

      I'm trying to create a contact list. Some of the parts of the contact list is modified by using a scroll down field that inputs/changes fields from another table.

      Now I'm able to do the basic concept of this without a problem.

       

      So say I'm making a contact list of clients and keep track of their work placements.  Since they can have more then one job I need to be able to create records of each job they have/had, and be able to pull that information within their main contact card that can be togged by a dropdown field. Now I have been trying to do with with fields only, but any record in the "work_placement" layout shows up on the drop down.  I want it so that I can specify which work_placement record belongs to who, and when I'm on that persons card, the drop down will only show what jobs belong to him/her. 

       

      I have seen similar examples using portals, but can this be done by fields only? And how?

       

      I hope I made sense.
