Define Plan Relationships

This article applies to:Aria Crescendo

Overview

Assigning plan relationships creates a link between a parent (master) plan and child (supplemental) plans. 

A Master Plan Instance can be:

  • The parent of one or multiple supplemental (child) plans.
  • A standalone plan that does not contain any supplemental plans.

A supplemental plan can be:

  • The child of a master plan.
  • The parent of another supplemental plan.
  • The child of another supplemental plan.

Note: The Plan Relationships tab is only available to select for existing plans. Otherwise, if you are creating a new plan, the Plan Relationships tab becomes available once you have completed the Details tab.
