Linking a person to an organization AND an association (or two organizations)

It would be helpful to be able to link a person to the organization they work for and the association the are involved with. I frequently get calls from the chairman of the conference committee but they actually work for a member organization. Please upvote if you'd like this functionality.

    Hi @Dan Diamond, MD thanks for sharing! Hopefully we'll get lots of votes.

    In the mean time you can best create an "organization type" of custom field under the contact persons: https://support.pipedrive.com/hc/en-us/articles/207228075-Custom-Fields

    You can call this for example "second org" then you can save a second org on the contact person details.

    I solved the problem by making a related organization. The paying customer is first (ie Intermediair) the End customer is related.

    I also created fields like 

    "Second Organization" if they work for two org.

    Organization T-1 : If they change to another org. I keep history

    Organization T-2 : If they change twice :)

    Isn't this something you can resolve fairly easy with a custom field with a pick-list that allows you to select multiple values?  Then via person filtered lists, you can slice and dice as much as you want.

    Creative solutions here. Nice to read.

    We had a challenge with companies that carry different brands. The customer is the company, but you deal with the brands. So how to manage that?

    What we have done is create a custom field type organization in an organization. We have also created the brands as an organization and linked them to the 'mother'. We have also labeled the brands as brands.

    You can now search for the brand, find it and immediately see who the mother is.

    Has this been updated?  I have many "people" who own more than one "organization".  Every time I add them to one org, they are dropped the other.
