Simply Way to Link Multiple Records with Each Other

I am reasonably new to Filemaker's greater depths of features and am really struggling with this problem. I think it's a self-join but can't seem to get it to work - have just gone blank


I have one simple table into which I am entering suggested features for a product. One feature may also be linked to others.


When creating a new feature record, via a form, I would like a portal on the form that displays the other previously created feature records. Then the ability within the portal to click a checkbox on those features that are linked to the one being created. Obviously, a new feature may be linked to more than one new feature etc.


I'm sure this is straight forward but am having a blank moment.
