Nested form question

Hello,

I was reviewing this app sample “NESTED FORM”:
https://www.appsheet.com/samples/How-to-use-nested-forms?appGuidString=d6cfb54e-80c3-461f-971f-8d65a955759b

I was wondering, is there a way to select a “Parent” from the existing master data instead of creating a new one (ex: via drop down list) ?

Goal: I’d like to select an existing parent and add a list of children to it very quickly (without selecting each time the parent).
Do you think nested form is a good choice for that ? Maybe else ?

Thanks in advance for your tips!

Absolutely; the only reason you have to create a new one is because there’s nothing in the system for that app - or they didn’t design it that way.

By default, if you setup your app connecting tables together using references - when you create a child record of the parent (by pressing that add button under the inline view) the parent-ref is automatically set for you.
