Increase Relationship Field Limitation

I believe relationship field is a very important feature... it is like when you link/connect tables together across the database (as in PK and FK connection).

Here is why, I've built a system for an Education Consultancy Agency that deals with both schools and students, we have 1 app for schools and another app for students recruited from those schools to measure the return of each partnership. And we have a relationship field in students app in order to mention the school name and link the student to the school.

Of course, I will be recruiting more than 250 students per school (which is the relationship field limitation), 250 is too little.

The limit only applies to “forward” relationships, so the 250 max does apply to your case. You can have as many students as you want that are associated with a school.

Hi Bassem, you need to reverse your thinking...  Rather than linking from the School to the Student, you need to link from the Student to the School.  Note that related items appear at the bottom of the item, so for example you would be able to see that School A has 1000 related Students.
