  4. Fill the data and save.

  5. Go to subheader 'Relationships' of this contact person BP.

  6. Create relationship 'Is Contact Person For' relationship to the Customer/Vendor BP.
    (Alternatively, you can go to the subheader 'Relationships' of the Customer/Vendor BP and assign relationship 'Has contact person' for this contact person BP.)

  7. You can edit the relationship and assign department, function, address etc.

  8. Save this relationship. The contact person BP will be synchronized to contact person via CVI.
