I'm trying to solve a particular business question and I'm not sure how it translates into drupal sematics, so please excuse me if this has been asked before.

I want to use a series of content types to capture user feedback on different engineering aspects of a project: the structure is pretty much

-> project

--> milestone

---> current technology set used

---> precieved highest risks

because the cardinality of the children is always >1, I think I need to use a separate content type for each.

Can anyone tell me how I add links to create a child object when viewing the parent, ie. create a new milestone for this project.... I can't seem to find a starting point in the documentation.

  1. Entity reference

Provides a field type that can reference arbitrary entities:

If youre looking for some Project management tools try these
