The following steps describe how to enter a profession connected to a person. In OpenAtlas a profession exists in connection to a group (e.g. an institute, country, etc.). To add a profession to a person, follow the steps below:

  • Create a person, see Actor
  • Create a group, see Actor
  • Press the Member of tab in the actor
  • Click the Link button
  • In the form use Type to choose the function of the person within the group
  • Choose the specific group or groups in the Actor field
  • Add date and/or description if desired

You can get the same result by using the Member tab in the group view and link a person there.

Keep in mind that it is possible to edit the available functions or add new ones in Type via Standard types and Actor function.
