Tag feature or similar?

As a Content Specialist, my team and I create and update quiz questions in our LMS. I was wondering if we could flag a question as the “master” question and then link it to all courses where that question would also appear. We come across the issue of using the same question in multiple places and then having to go to all those places and update when changes happen. I know we can link information (this is awesome!), however, is there some type of tagging feature available as well? Or something to indicate where our master question is located?

Welcome to the community, @India!

I’m not sure I understand your question. If you add lookup fields to a table, that will enable you to pull in information from the linked record. Is that what you’re trying to do?

I cover linked record fields and lookup fields in my Airtable training course, which you can take for free by signing up for a trial membership with LinkedIn Learning:

Thank you! I know it might be a bit confusing. I know that we can pull in information using the linked record. However, here is what I am trying to figure out. I currently have an .XLS spreadsheet with quiz questions that I store. This spreadsheet has multiple tabs (each tab representing a different LMS course where the question is housed). I may have one question in Tab A of the spreadsheet that is also in Tabs B,C and D. I wanted to know if I moved this info into Airtable, is there some type of feature in that I can use to indicate or signify that Tab A holds the “master question” or the is the location from which the original question was created? Can I “tag” it or indicate this in any type of way for myself and my team?

In Airtable, all of your questions should only live in one table. If you’re looking to separate them into different “master courses”, you would want to separate them into different “filtered views” instead of different “tabs”. (If you haven’t played around with views yet, I also cover views in depth in my course.)
