I have a Dell P2720DC and Apple Thunderbolt Displays I want to daisy chain. Since the Dell has USB-C PD, I prefer connecting my MacBook to it, but then I'm not sure I can connect its DisplayPort output to Apple Thunderbolt Display.

Would it work? Which cable/adaptor to use?

If not, are there other options?

    You can't. The Apple display is a data connection over Thunderbolt, the Dell monitor is DisplayPort over USBC. Oct 7, 2021 at 0:42

No, this won’t work in a daisy chain situation.

How many Thunderbolt ports does your MacBook have?

Perhaps a Thunderbolt dock is what you need? The ones from caldigit are superb and give a lot of value for the price.
