Relationships allow related information to be very easily and
transparently displayed in the portal. In the Relationships module,
the relations between individual data records of various data groups
will be displayed at a glance in a relationship diagram.
Relationships between data records of parent and child data groups,

can be created with a Customer number data field,
and between the CRM application with a Customer
number data field, if the field from the Workshopapplication
does not reference the field in the CRM application,
but rather is filled using DataPicker.
Intrexx Share can also display relationships that are defined in the
Relationship Designer. If plugins are defined and activated for a data
group that is used in the Relationship Designer, all of the feeds will
be represented with their relationship to the current feed.

represented. If relationship diagrams are created and published in the Relationships
module, they can be included in the Application Designer with
a unique view element. Here you will see how it looks in the browser.
