Civi 5.10.4. under Wordpress 5.1.1 multisite network using the plugins Caldera Forms and Caldera Forms CiviCRM. I'm seeking to create a new contact creation form for our incarcerated persons visitation & advocacy program. For example, one of our program coordinators gets a call or letter from a detained person that coordinator needs to create a new detained person contact record. The longer term goal is to create a system to track activities like visits, letters, transfers, and complaints. I'm starting by trying to make an interface to create new detained person contacts. I created the detained person contact type, created some of the fields we'll use, and made a profile to contain some of those. Then I created a Caldera Form and mapped the form field names to the detained person contact type.
When I use the form to create a new contact, it updates my own contact record rather than creating a new record. I've tried setting the form processor to link to either Contact 1 or Contact 2, but seem to get the same result. I think there's something I'm not understanding about how to set up the processor.
Can I use Caldera to create a new contact (other than the person logged in)? If so, how? Additionally, it would be ideal to track who was the logged in user who created the new detained person contact. Do I need to create an activity processor for that?
Thanks in advance for any help and guidance the community can provide on this.
