Customize the Order of Appearance for Relationship Types

Cividesk is proud to be an active contributor to the CiviCRM community since 2011. We contribute to the project every month with new code, code fixes, by hosting events and more.

Most recently, Cividesk added a very helpful functionality that displays the relationships of a contact by order of preference. This allows you to customize which relationship types should be seen at the top based on your chosen priorities. This is particularly useful if a contact has a large amount of relationships so that you can ensure that the most important ones are visible first.

This new feature has been contributed back to the CiviCRM Core Team and is available now for all Cividesk customers!




In the administration menu (Administer > Customize Data and Screens > Relation Types), you can now customize the order of appearance of the relationship types.




Notice the viewing order changed according to the choices made in the administration screen.
