Display Order with Related Entities
If you add custom fields to the basic contact entity and then add fields to roles associated with contacts, you will need to take care, as the fields will become mixed if they have the same number sequence.
The following table outlines where you need to be careful:
|UTA Level 1 Entities||UTA Level 1 Template Entities|
You should start the number sequence for these types of related fields at some higher level. For example, role 1 starts at 5000, role 2 starts at 8000.
