The Relationship Completer v1.1.0 has been released today – it’s a handy little utility for those (such as genealogists) who use their address books and want to keep track of relationships inside of the address books.
Letâ€™s say you have the two Address Book entries: â€œJohn Doeâ€ and â€œJane Doeâ€. If John and Jane are married, you may set the appropriate â€œRelated Nameâ€ fields in Address Book to denote this fact. To completely realize the relationship you will need to add a spouse relationship to both John and Janeâ€™s entry – each pointing to the other. This violates my first law of data entry duplication: donâ€™t do it.
Thatâ€™s where Relationship Completer comes in. It will add a new menu item for â€œRelated Namesâ€ that allows you to automatically complete the relationship by creating the complementary related name entry. Now all you need to do is create one of the spouse entries and have the other one created automatically.
Requires: Max OS X 10.3.9+ There is a German translation available as well.
