Default Sets for Relationships
Importing relationships is an important function of IOM. When building an import file containing relationships, however, there are fields populated with redundant information that could instead be better represented through the use of a default set. Fields such as Relationship, Reciprocal, Date From, Print Position?, Primary,? and Employee? generally do not differ and end up containing identical information.
Furthermore, since the content or meaning of these fields is usually understood to be obvious simply by their existence in the import file, the original data file most likely will not contain these fields. That the individual is Employee of their Employer from the Date of import and that, again, it is TRUE that we want this employee to be actively represented in the database means a default set would be useful.
IOM Dev Team, thank you for your continued expansion into areas of Raiser's Edge where Blackbaud left off!
