When a contact signs up for membership "on behalf of" an organisation, through a standard membership contribution page. The individual is then created with the employer/employee relationship to the organisation.

If the organisation has several employee contacts in the database is there a way of identifying the contact that recorded the membership? Is that stored somewhere in the bowels of the db?

If it was a paid membership then may be using Contribution activity you can track it down.


For us it shows it as the 'added by contact' on the activities tab(s).

    Agree. Activities for the Contribution, Membership status change and Membership sign up are all created on both records
