I am new to Civi (I started working for a company that is using it). I actually started this question in Civi community and was guided here.
Our company currently uses civi to track our corporate membership. We want to import our clients who are schools and districts, as well. Except we have a concern about how to organize schools and districts (Schools come to us as projects from the district level and it is our end goal to use civicase to monitor our projects).
One of our plans is to import schools as individuals and create a Contact Type properly identifying them as schools and import Districts as companies.
Another suggestion made was importing both as companies and properly identifying the Contact Type in this way (ie, schools, districts, corporate)
A third idea was to import schools as companies and districts as a household. But I am not sure how the relationships will work between these.
As someone new to civi, it is difficult to see the advantages and drawbacks of each option. On top of which, occasionally our projects names are different to the school name and we keep record of both.
Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated!
