Could anyone give the clarity on Contact roles?

Basically why we add contact role related list in Account layout?

  • I recommend you the module Account & Contacts in Trailhead => trailhead.salesforce.com/modules/admin_intro_accounts_contacts – benahm Mar 3 '17 at 10:54
  • in addition to the above comment, I would suggest reading this article. @benahm: I would suggest to post your comment as answer with more details and some excerpts from the articles to help the OP and anyone who visits understand. :) – Mahmood Mar 3 '17 at 11:07

  • for example account is company : ABC company and ceo, directores etc people are tagged into contact role. – Shravan Boddula Mar 3 '17 at 12:35

Contact role related list helps link & define the role of each contact on a given account (even if the contact does not belong to the account)

As displayed down here I am on the Acme Corporation and I linked contacts from the current account & other accounts to this account
