What I would like to do is link contacts to contacts with a specific role attached. The example would be a family signing up for services, I'd like to say enter the mom, dad, and kids and then link the mom & dad to the kids so when you look up the dad/mom you'd see they are connected to the kids. Additionally, I'd like to add the role, so in the case it would be 'mother' or 'father' of the connected contact.
When I tried to take the 'add connected contact' from another tab (say account table) it says it isn't related. But the question is, since I am linking a contacts table to itself, how would this work?
