Creating an array of references for a product category in Sanity.io

Hey all, I’m trying to create an array of references in a product category document that populates with products that have their category defined. So, if I have a type of window with a category of “vinyl window”, I’d like that to show up in the array of refs in my “vinyl window” category. I found the validation section in the docs, but I’m not sure how to implement the idea

So, you're kind of trying to show incoming references for a document. E.g. "all documents referencing this document", right?
There's no out of the box way of doing that, but one way would be to create a new document tab and query for the documents in that tab and list them out yourself... would that work for you?
