Assign a Related Client

When a group is initially created, the first related client is assigned as the primary client.
Related Client Structure

Multiple clients are related in a group, which can be more than two clients. Each client is individually related to all clients in a client group.

View a Related Client

Load a Client on a client tab.

Related Clients are directly below the Contacts band. The related clients band is only visible if the currently selected client is related to another client.

The list includes the client name, DBA, address, and phone numbers. Clicking on the name of a related client will load the Client Tab for the selected client.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I assign more than two clients to a related client group?

I really like the new client linking "related to" option - but it's limited to one?
We have some clients who own two commercial companies, plus we have their house - so we would have 3 individual client files for them (business, commercial landlord, and personal lines house)?

Answer

A group of related clients can have an unlimited number of members.

Instead of pointing the primary/master client to one of the subsidiary/child clients, create the relationship going the opposite direction.

  1. Establish which client is the master/parent client. Do not assign a related client value for the master/parent client. (The master/parent client should have its own client number in the related client field.)
  2. Open a child client's profile and relate the child to the parent.
  3. Repeat step 2 for each child client.

After all of the child clients have been set, all of the clients will now be related in one large group. Every single client in the group will list all of the other group members.
