New Feature: Show associations on the Detail Pages

So, this is kind of embarrassing to write because I should have been writing this like seven years ago.  But here we are.  There is a feature we released Monday night that is awesome.  It is simple: we are showing you the relationships between a Log Entry (and/or Action Item) and anything you associate it to.

For example, in the images below you can see two Log Entries.  They have a title (bold), the comments/body (below the title), and in the blu box it shows the associations:


Let’s say you go to a panel interview.  You create a Log Entry and associate it to the four people that were on the panel, the one company, and the job you interviewed for.  Just for fun, let’s also associate it to the recruiter who you are working with and his firm.  That is:

5 People

2 Companies

1 Job

After you create the Action Item and associate it to those eight records, you’ll see those eight records in the blue area under your Log Entry, on any of those page.  In other words, if you go to Company Detail Page you’ll see it from there.  If you go to the recruiter’s Detail Page, you’ll see the Log Entry and the other associations.

I know, I know, it’s about time.

That is the feature.  The benefit to you is that you can easily see how a conversation, communication, event, etc. impacted other people, companies, jobs.

Just wait to see what we have NEXT!

  1. Thanks Adrian… this makes it really easy to see, at a glance, who and what (companies/jobs) is associated to a particular Log Entry. Why oh why didn’t we do this earlier 🙂
