How to access fields from links to a file

I’m trying to create a table that would give me certain fields from links to my daily notesle (ctime in this case) as in:

table file.outlinks.ctime 
from "dailies"

this seems like the most direct approach but doesn’t work. I’ve been tinkering with GROUP and FLATTEN but I’ve had no lock so far.

Is it even possible what I’m trying to do with dataview?

Thanks in advance.

Try this:

TABLE file.outlinks, file.outlinks.file.ctime
FROM "dailies"


  • first, you need to obtain all outlinks from each daily note;
  • then, you need to obtain the ctime from each file.outlink

Thanks a lot! I would have never guessed it!
