Data Entry: Relationships

Data Entry provides for pre-creating one relationship:

Simply pick a relationship, and specify a related individual by entering an other ID type and a unique identifying number.

There is no checking at this point, and the related individual is not required to exist at this point.

With the exception of catalog numbers (see above), the related ID must be entered as it will appear in coll_obj_other_id_num.display_value. Lists, concatenations, and other strangeness will not resolve.

After the specimen is loaded, the relationship will be saved to Pending Relationships. If the other ID entered in data entry corresponds to exactly one individual (e.g., "field number 1" probably won't), the relationship will be automatically created. Otherwise, curatorial intervention is required.
