Hi everyone, I am trying to figure something out that is probably pretty simple but bear with me.  I am setting up a DE org for a small film production company.  I have made a "projects" custom object and what I am trying to figure out is how I go from populating these fields (Writer #1 and Writer #2 fields in picture below)

I used a contact lookup field so that I could go ahead and search for a contact I have or enter a new one if they werent there.  Seeing as I had no contacts, I went ahead and added those two names to my contacts right in my Project Object in the picture.  But what I wanted it to do was to then automatically have those two contacts show up in the Related Items contact tab. (picture below)

As you can see it still shows that I have zero contacts.  What am i doing wrong here?  Any help would really be appreciated!  Thanks!

Hi ,

You need a lookup in contact level (for the custom object) to get the contact as related list in any object.
