doing a course app with meetings and attendees I got a meetings table with relations+lookups to get the email addresses of the attendees but when I want to access these fields in the meetings component they do not show up. I compared my tables to the “Company Tasks & Projects” template and I am doing pretty much the same as what the app is doing with employe-email lookup. There it works but not in my own app. Any hints?

It’s because your relation is a multiple relation, and so your lookup returns an array. And an array cannot be used as the source of a component that expects a single value.
Assuming that you want to show all attendees, you’re probably better off replacing the lookup column with a joined list instead, and use that in a rich text component. If you want each shown on a separate line, you can replace the default comma separator with a new line.
Lookups will only show like this when used with Single Relations. Uncheck the “multiple” checkbox in your relation and it should show up.
Thank you both. That was the problem. The initial goal is to send an email to all course attendees so I converted the lookup to a joined list and think I can move on from here.
