Not sure if I'm missing something obvious here, but on an Account layout I can add Contact Roles fine. Now if I want to view this from a Contact point of view (ie see what roles a Contact plays in several Accounts) I'd expect to see a similar related list available on the Contact layout.

It isn't there.

Does anyone know why this might be?

  • Is it simply that the contact roles related list isn't displayed on the contact layout? Have you tried adding it to page layout?

We have only following three types of Team:

  1. Account Team
  2. Opportunity Team
  3. Case team

But not Contact Team.

There is Idea open for this where you can vote.

  • Doesn't quite seem to be the same thing. Account Teams are Users who work together on an Account. Contact Roles describe how a Contact (not User) interacts with an Account.

Salesforce does not allow us to add related list on Contact to show where it is part of Contact Role.

You have the option to either build a custom related list in LWC/Aura/VF Page or install the CMTD Enhanced Related List app and configure it for your use case.

There is a video here on how to setup and configure the app : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p9wljcwdM0&t=694s
