Is it possible to capture an event to multiple notes with conditions?

I want to build a vault for logging events, similar to this example QuickAdd capture. Each event will append an entry in the form HH:mm [[activity name]] [with:: [[person]]]. For example:

- 08:31 [[Swimming]] 
- 10:45 [[Eat delicious food]] [with:: [[Alice]]] 
- 15:19 [[Meeting]] [with:: [[Alice]], [[Bob]]] 

If the field with exists, then the events are also capture in the person log. So [[Alice]] will have

- 10:45 [[Eat delicious food]] [with:: [[Alice]]] 
- 15:19 [[Meeting]] [with:: [[Alice]], [[Bob]]] 

and [[Bob]] will have

- 15:19 [[Meeting]] [with:: [[Alice]], [[Bob]]] 

Is that possible?

Hello.

I don’t know enough to be able to answer your question, but tangentially could you explain the use / advantage of having the single square brackets starting before ‘with’:

[with:: [[Alice]]]

[with:: [[Alice]], [[Bob]]]

I am super dumb, and I can’t figure out if it has a function.

Thanks.

First of all, you’re not super dumb. Stop that nonsense.

Second, it serves the purpose of containing the definition of the inline field of with.

Many thanks—du er flink.

Grrrrrrr. I have read the Dataview pages for ‘Adding Metadata’ numerous times and yet I somehow failed to understand it until your post. :exploding_head: :sob: :clap:t3: Frick my brain.
