Select values from relations just like "User >" (Inline Lookups)

Just like we can choose a value from a user profile sheet during if/then/else columns, template columns, filtering/visibility conditions, etc, would love to be able to do the same via relations. It would cut down on SO MUCH app bloat. @david @mark @tristan

Here’s a mockup:

100% yes! @David actually mentioned something like this a long time ago around a hopeful change to the way lookups are done — basically every relation’s values would exist as a pre-configured lookup (so exactly what you’ve mocked up here). I think it would basically get rid of the lookup column, so I’m thinking that it may be tough to implement and ensure backwards compatibility with older apps.

We call these ‘inline lookups’, and have wanted to do them for some time.
