I just finished watching the Core 1 videos and I'm a bit confused. Maybe this is answered in future videos but...
It's kind of sounding like the intention is to have all entities in one big table rather than several. Such as customers, vendors, others...? Then somehow (in the future) they would be differentiated - EntityType maybe? -
Am I understanding your line of thought in this? Maybe I'm jumping ahead to fast in my mind.
Scott, you're correct. An entity can be designated as being part of one or more groups (Part 2). You can have vendors, employees, sales reps, parents, softball team, customer, lead, Star Trek fan, whatever you want. Then later on, if you want to make an order form where the sales rep is selected from a list of just your sales reps, you can pull from members of that group. This essentially prevents multiple tables that essentially all store the same thing: information about entities (which can be individuals, families, companies, etc.) I tried to keep it as generic and flexible as possible.

Thanks for the clarification. Haven't had time to move on to the nest core yet.
Sorry, only students may add comments.
