In Paragon, you can link information from one set of data to another. The associations function in Paragon can be used to accomplish this. We use the term references for data sets such as vendors, products, customers, etc.. By setting up attributes or fields of information within these reference tables, you can link common information from one reference table to another. Here, we'll walk you through the option of creating one-to-many associations in Paragon.
In this example, we'll associate Purchase Cost and Volume with a specific Vendor on the Product module as an example.
From any screen, navigate to the product module. Here, we'll use product LMI_DRN "Lumi gaming drone" as an example.
Here, you can see that the initial purchase cost is setup as 97.99 USD.
Hit the Associated tab located above the edit button to enter associations.
Hit the edit button in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
Now, hit the blue add button on the left. A modal will pop up and you'll be prompted to enter a reference type and reference ID. Here, we're choosing a Vendor HKTDC CAD.
Hit the next button. Now, you'll be prompted to enter your associations. Here, we're choosing the Purchase Cost and Volume attributes.
Choose these attributes from the drop down menu, and enter the amounts in the blank fields.
Once you're done adding your associations, hit the green accept button. You will now be able to see your one-to-many association.
Hit the save button once you're done.
