Things I have tried
I have looked through these forums and other tutorials online, including the Dataview documentation, but can’t quite get the right result.
What I’m trying to do
I use notes for individual people, to keep track of my interactions with them. As such, when I have meetings, I create a participant list.
I tried to create a table to show all meetings that I had had with that person. I did so with the following code:
dataview TABLE WITHOUT ID link(file.link, file.frontmatter.meeting_date) AS "Date", project AS "Project", meeting_topic AS "Topic" FROM "Meetings" WHERE contains(file.outlinks, [[@Name]]) SORT meeting_date DESC
However, after using it for a little while, I discovered a fatal flaw with this approach. It lists all meetings where an individual is mentioned, even if that individual wasn’t in attendance at the meeting. After looking through some tutorials, I got closer, but still not quite on the money. I have tried the following, which instead lists every participant at any meeting where the individual is mentioned, as opposed to listing every meeting that individual is a named participant (under the “Participants” heading):
dataview TABLE L.text FROM "Meetings" FLATTEN file.lists AS L WHERE meta(L.section).subpath = "Participants" AND contains(file.outlinks, [[@Name]])
Does anyone have the ability to get me over the line here?
