What relationship is best to use in a scenario where an individual signs up on behalf of an organization but the organization is actually the Member? Is it the Employer of or Employee of relationship type?

I want the Organization to be the primary Member.


If the Organization is the Member, then you need the Membership Type to be set to use the "Employer of" relationship. If you go here and click on the '?' next to Relationship Type it says

Relationship Type: Employer of

Direct member is: an organisation

Membership is automatically granted to: 'Employees' of that organization

  • Thanks a lot. That has confused me a litte until now. My next question relating to that is howdo i display organizations Dashboard when the Employee logs in because i would rather have the Organizations dashboard displayed.

  • Suggest you ask that question as a separate question and explain a bit more perhaps with an example on the WP demo site. I have no idea with WP how you would have someone login, whose own dashboard is at civicrm/user?reset=1 and then grab their permissioned employer id and take them to eg civicrm/user?reset=1&id=208.
