Data Exchange Question

Hello again all,

Set the stage:
- Organization Category field in OVSD has been imported that is 5 levels deep (Parent Org, child1, child2, etc..)
- Locations have been imported

Now I want to import person records w/ the relation to their respected ORG, but how would I do it so it maps to say the 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc level deep in the Organization category field???

How would one do this mapping?

Thank you for your time all

Hi

You would map onto the level that is appropriate so:

Org Level 1
->>>>>>> Org Level 2
->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Org Level 3

You would map to the correct level. When you open the Person record it will show the Persons Org at the level you have connected it and then the parent, grand parent etc above it.

One thing to be aware of is that if you have multiple Orgs with the name (or whatever field you are keying the Data Exchange into) then the load for that Person will fail as it will not know which Org to connect it to.

Re: Data Exchange Question

Ok, I think I see where you're going with that. Could you provide a sample text for mapping 1 person record to an Org at the 4th level. Like it should look in an ini file?

Thanks
