Things I have tried
Searching the Obsidian forums
Looking through the menus
What I’m trying to do
When I have a “person page”, I would like to be able to then mention that person in meeting notes (which are always tagged with
#meeting), and then when I go to that person’s page be able to have a list of meetings they were mentioned in under a “Meetings” heading. Ideally, I would just include this section and list in my template that I use for all people pages.
Is this possible at all currently?

You can do it with the dataview plugin.
Mark every person with “
#person” and every meeting with “ #meeting”.
In your meetings you add persons by simply adding links [[Jane Smith]]. And then add a table:
table without id
link(file.link, title) as "Person"
where contains(this.file.inlinks, file.link) and contains(file.tags, "#person")
sort date desc ```
Replace the “…” with anything else you want to display, or delete if the name is all you need. Check out the documentation what you can access from a file
It should get you a list of persons that link to this meeting.
Analogously you can get a list of persons that link to this meeting, by placing the above code into a person and replacing
#person with #meeting.
Hope tha thelps!

considering u mentioned “filtered backlinks”, then this post should be what u need. see the plugin (Obsidian Query Control) in use in the post. note that you have to install it using BRAT plugin.
also, if ur note doesn’t have the person and tag within same paragraph/list-item, u might want to use
section: ([[Ipsum]]) OR #ACMECorp
@aarontimo, i think what u need can be achieved with obsidian query function. but to add useful feature like showing in rendered markdown and controlling some other elements, you can try to use Query Control plugin for that (but u need to install using BRAT)
here’s an example for reference
block: ([[Ipsum]]) OR #ACMECorp
title: My Search on Ipsum and ACMECorp
alternatively, u can use this plugin
