How to create a 'relationship' to objects eg cars owned, pets owned etc

I am a new user of ACT 12 but have been using ACT 6 for years. I need to create a database where Contacts have 'relationships' not with other people but with 'objects'

 

EG a database of car owners where a Contact may own several vehicles and where I want to track the make, colour etc of the vehicle and then search for vehicle makes to see who owns them.

 

Or a Pet Owner database where a Contact may own several pets of different breeds or species where I may want to search on Contacts who own Poodles or search for Poodles and find Contacts (owners) who have them.

 

Is that possible?

 


Thanks

Hello woofwidget,

Welcome to the ACT! Online Community.There is a Relationships feature in AC! 2010, but it only applies to relating contacts to other contacts. To do what you are asking, you could either set up custom fields where the "car" or "pet" information is stored. Or you possibly use the Opportunities function to do this.
