One to many relationship
By way of background, I am new to vtiger but I gave up on v6 and have reverted to coreBOS 5.5 as I believe it is more stable and robust in terms of where it is going. We have a small firm that is highly specialised and we are using coreBOS to support our clients. We use it to manage the relationships and the workload - not to secure sales and so on - though we will be using Leads to follow up on enquiries and sales initiatives.

I am techno literate but am not a developer so I do need to be guided.

One of the issues that has been bothering me is the (apparent) lack of a one to many relationship (e.g. multiple contacts for an organisation) or the ability to have a 'repeating block' for multiple instances of the same data (in our case a client can have multiple directors and I need to keep half a dozen pieces of information for each director). From my limited knowledge I can only achieve this by repeating the fields and making the labels unique. As an example Director (1); Director (2) etc. It get complicated when there is a field in the information about each entity that repeats (e.g. Date of appointment (1); Date of appointment (2)). When I then want to create a report or a workflow that tests each field I then have to put in multiple tests (e.g. 'if Date of appointment (1) <> or Date of appointment (2)) etc etc.

Is there a simple solution to this issue or is it on the roadmap?

Keep up the good work Joe (more posts coming your way in the forum).
