Unable to set primary contact


#1

Hi all,

since one of the latest releases, it seems that selecting the primary contact is no longer possible. I have a customer with a linked contact. All is saved, but I cannot select a primary contact:

Observed in ERPNext: v10.1.73 (master) / Frappe Framework: v10.1.66 (master)

Am I missing something or is this a bug?

Retracting the bug, it requires the contact to be set “primary”, only then it becomes selectable:

I would propose to drop this limitation, per customer the number of contacts is usually not that big and you can start typing to find the hit. But opening the contact - setting “primary” - saving - go to customer - set primary contact seems more complex than necessary…

My customer hate how the customer contact is being organized using the system.

I am creating my own custom fields to store customer contact details on the customer forms.
