Link Organizations and Community
- First, within an organization, choose New Organization Community”
- Then, lookup the community in which the Organization is located. Click Save.
- If the community does not yet exist, you will need to create it before you can make this relationship.
- You can also link to the Organization from the Community record.
- This relationship is a special record known as a 'junction record'.
- A junction record allows many-to-many relationships. For example organizations can be within multiple communities and communities can contain multiple organizations
- We use junction records in many ways to build a complex network of relationships.
