Contacts Entity To be linked with Account & another Custom Entity RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    At the moment, we have the Contact entity linked with account entity. Many contacts associated with one account.

    We have a new requirement to create a custom entity "ABC". 

    We have a new relationship requirement to  associate many contact records to one Account record or one "ABC" record.

    Please can you advise the necessary solution.
