Secondary Relationships

JustWare conveniently links names in the database by relationships they have with each other (i.e. Alias, Parent, Doctor, Case Worker, Employer, Spouse, etc.). A secondary relationship relates another name to the current name. For example, if another name in the database is the child of the current name the child's name can be added as a secondary relationship in the parent's name session.

JustWare automatically adds relationship information to the name session of the linked person. For example, in the above example, the name session of the child will now have the parent's name and relationship (parent) under primary relationships.

See Primary Relationships for more information on primary relationships.

When a primary or secondary relationship is entered in one name record, the related name record is automatically updated. [For data entry consistency, it is highly recommended, however, that new relationships be added to the Secondary Relationships snap-in.

Creating a Secondary Relationship Record

  1. Click the Secondary Relationships snap-in in any open name session.
  2. Add a new record.
  3. Fill in the fields provided:

    • To The Name Above, This Person: Type the name of the person you are adding as a secondary relationship and press Enter or click the search button to perform a name lookup.

      Tip: If the correct name does not appear in the results of the name lookup, you can add a new name record to associate by clicking New Name from the Actions group. - Is This Relation: Select the relationship of the person you are adding as a secondary relationship to the person whose name session you are in from the list.

    Tip: Names automatically become hyperlinks when they are successfully added. Click the hyperlink or press Enter to open a linked name.

    Once a record has been added as a secondary relationship, the name of the person whose name session you are in will automatically appear as a primary relationship in the name session of the person who was added here as a secondary relationship. 4. Save the session.

Finding a Secondary Relationship Record

Search for secondary relationships in one of the following two ways:

  • If you know the name of the secondary relationship: Enter the name in the search bar or Name Search session and press Enter. Records matching your search criteria are displayed in a search session.
  • If you know the name with which the secondary relationship is associated: Open the name session and click the Secondary Relationships snap-in where secondary relationships are listed.
