The Primary indicator is useful in custody scenarios where the child resides with one parent and the school wants to query for Primary parents in a list.  

In some custody situations, both Parents might request the Resides With indicator be marked, such as in joint custody.  However, the Primary indicator can also be marked for a Parent in Relationship Settings to show with whom the child mostly resides with, even in joint custody scenarios.

Platform Managers must set the Primary indicator in the Relationship Settings within the Student's profile.

To set up the Primary indicator in Relationship Settings:
  1. Navigate to Core and use the People Finder to locate a Student.
  2. Open the Contact Card tab.
  3. Scroll to the Relationships click Manage Relationships.
  4. Mark the Primary indicator for the Parent that it is required for.
  1. Click Save.
