Relating Multiple Entities - Team, Team Member, Team Role

I'm going round in circles trying to solve a problem for relationships. Here is analogy for the problem I am trying to solve.

 

  • I have multiple teams
  • Teams have multiple members and members can part of multiple teams
  • Each member of a specific team has a role, but the member maybe in a different team with a different role

If I create a N:N role between the team entity and the user entity I can select my team members, however, I'm stuck trying to relate the member in the team to a team role. Is this possible?

Relationships don't support attributes so it's not possible out of the box (you end up having to create join entities if you need to add attribute information).

 

Team membership actually doesn't use the entity relationship model anyway - depending on the type of teams you are using (owner teams or access teams) the user record guid of members of an ownership team is stored as a list of guids within the team record.

Ben,

 

Thanks for the help and information, at least now I can stop going round in circles!

I might explore if I could do something with business processes, or failing that have a record that is manipulated by flow so that if the user doesn't have a role it acts as a flag and does something that stops further functionality occurring.
