RELATIONSHIPS
Option selectableSelectable on configuration screen
Enables an additional tab in the contact details screen
Enables an additional screen in the send message wizard
Allows multiple relationships per contact Johnny's mother is Amanda
Johnny's father is Paul
Johnny's doctor is Dr. du Little
Allows multiple actions per relationship Johnny's mother is appointed parent
Johnny's father is also appointed parent
Johnny's father is a PTA member
Eg. Send to relatives To send all grade 1,2,3 learner's mother's a message to remind them of Mother's day consert 10:00am at the school hall. New message to group - grades 1, 2,3, relationship - mother, next, next, send - will send SMS to all grade 1,2 & 3 mommies, which would include Amanda.
Eg. Send to appointed persons To send all grade 1 learner's parents a message to bring swimming gear and sunscreen tomorrow. New message to group - grade 1, relationship - parent, next, next, send - will send SMS to all grade 1 parents, so Paul & Amanda would get it.
Eg. Send to sub group of entire organisation To send all "PTA members" a message to remind them the the meeting will be 16:00 in the hall ... New message to group - learners, relationship action - "PTA member", next, next, send - will send to all learners relatives that are "PTA members", so Paul would get it.
Eg. Many to one situation To send all doctors an SMS of Rabies outbreak at the school. It's a rediculous example, but it illustrates that if we had to send a message to all doctors of all children that this could result in 1 doctor receiving many messages ... but would never happen because on the last page of the send wizard, all duplicates are removed, so Dr du Little will only get 1 SMS even if she was the appointed doctor for all the children.
