In Hubspot, in the Companies module, there is a section on the right hand side called 'Related Companies'. This is an existing feature of Hubspot.
This allows a company to link to other companies.
The two options are 'Add a parent company' and 'Add a child company'
We would like to replicate this functionality for 'Supplier' and 'Buyer' in order to map the supply chains of our clients.

This is not what I want. I would like to have under or above the card called "Related Companies " another card with exactly the same functionality, but with different wording. I do not want to replace the wording of the exisiting one, I would like to add a new one.
Let me knoe if that is possible.
Thanks in advance!

I see, from your explanation "Custom Objects" is the closest feature I can think of : Use custom objects
This is available for Enterprise accounts and you can create custom objects that your business needs.
When the custom object is associated to another record, it will appear in the record's right panel. You can see the image in here: Customize the custom object section in associated records

@natsumimori Thank you for your reply!
However, I do not need a new object, I simly need to create an association between two companies. Or is it only possible by cerating a new object? If this is the case then can I ask for more detailed documentation on how to replicate this functionality?

I believe adding parent/child company is the only feature that allows you to assocaite 2 companies:S
@karstenkoehler - Do you come up with an idea on how to address these needs?

Hi @VDrigin , thank you for your post.
Do you mean you'd want to change the wording of "Related Companies" section within a company record?
If so, that is not possible at this time and I'd recommend posting your product feature request in the HubSpot Ideas Forum. Our product team is constantly on the lookout here for users' feedback and ideas on ways in which they could possibly improve the functionality of our tools. When considering this idea as a new feature for future updates on the tool, we will based off from this platform. Thanks!

@natsumimori - I want to add a third option to Related companies called "Media Agency". Is that possible?
