Allow creation of fields based on another table

Status : Declined
over 3 years ago

Briefly describe your idea
Allow some fields to be based on table data - allow the creation of these ENTITY_LINK type fields and allowing us to select where the data to populate the field would come from so we could use it

Why is this important, when it would it be used
For example a field of brands/vendors that would be created from the Vendor Management table. When creating a new device, a brand would need to be selected from the existing ones.
 
Other examples: drop-down list of all SLA names (with the values being their ID's) and to be able to select them from the device table (in a new field created for this)

If you were designing the solution, how would  you do it?
Fields could be created to "look" at some specific table for its value/display values.
