Custom Objects - Many-to-Many

I have been trying to create Custom Objects to determine how we want to use them. 

One-to-many we have no issues.  I understand what we can do with these objects. 

Many-to-many we have been trying to set up our sand box and according to the documentation it says if you use the intermediate object then you don’t need to link to a parent table.  This sounds great but we can’t get the new object to show up in the linked object of the intermediate object because we can’t publish the custom object.  It says we need to have a linked field before publishing? 

What are we missing? 

There has to be specific steps to create a many-to-many but the documentation isn’t giving us what we need to bypass errors.

Re: Custom Objects - Many-to-Many

Hi Tim,

First point : you should rather publish questions in "Products", instead of "Champions". Much more people will be alerted and will be likely to answers.

Now, with regards to your question: Apparently, you need to ask support to enable the Many-To-Many relationship before you can use it.

Onces enables, you will be able to publish the "edge" table first and then use it as a link target when creating link fields in the "bridge" table.

Best regards,

Greg

Re: Custom Objects - Many-to-Many

Yes - we found out today that they needed to enable Many-To-Many relationship.  Once we have that then we should be able to do what we need to do.

Thanks for the heads up on where to post.

Thank you for your time.
