In Ripple, you can group participants together using a Family ID. When participants have the same Family ID, they will appear in each other’s Family section at the bottom of their participant profile card. To help with data entry, and reduce errors users can import a participant’s family member’s contact information into the Contact Methods section of another family member’s profile.
