Changing a Pre-Existing Record to a Parent/Child Record


I'm a novice Collective Access user as we have been recently attempting to set it up at my office. I was wondering if there was a way to create a parent/child relationship from two pre-existing collections records. These are two separate artworks, one of which is derivative of the other and we want to be able to reflect that hierarchy.

Thank you,


  • you should be able to set up a relationship type such as "source"<->"derivative" or whatever you call it, then in the object's record you add a related object of type "source"<->"derivative".
