I would like to extend the relationship type between organizations . eg. "Customer of" to represent customer networks of an organizations.

So far there are just 3 options to link organizations (related, parent / daughter)

From time to time we get insights about what products customers are using. We use this intel to track our competition. I would like to capture that information by linking them with the providing organization.

The relationship type could be “customer of” or “business related” as an example.

    Hi Markus!

    This is probably something that should be done with Custom Fields. Maybe a single or multiple option field with "Customer of" as the name of the field and competitors as options.

    Hi Andre,

    Thanks for your suggestion. A customer field “Customer of:” set to the field “Organization” and the option to add one to many would work as a workaround.

    However, the relationship feature would be the better way.
