In addition to relationships, objects can also have subobjects. For example, a customer object can have a contact person as a subobject. Object types and the relationships between them are specified by the system administrator in M-Files Admin. The Ctrl + J shortcut shows the object's subobjects and lets you edit and remove them. You can add a new contact person directly from the vault with the Subobjects option.
