Cascade Update example

In this Cascade Update example DEFAULT HQ has moved and now needs to update all of their contact records to reflect the new location "DEFAULT CORPORATE". Use the Cascade Update Utility to automatically update all DEFAULT HQ contact records when the location has been updated in the DEFAULT HQ location record.

There are two phases to make this happen:

  • Add a trigger record.
  • Add a Cascade Update Configuration record.
  1. Set a trigger to monitor the location file and call the RAD application, cascade.update.wrapper, when the location record is updated (After Update) in the location file.
  2. Configure a Cascade Update Configure Record to update the location in all contact records associated with that same location.
  3. Test the Cascade Update.
