Coming back to this —> 18 months later!!
In December 2017, @SJohns, @TimDavies & @tanaka and I held a workshop with several Bond members to start discussion around “IATI & Federated Organisations” (I’ll format the materials and such and post them online).
Anyway, we discussed the use of related-activity, in terms of making connections between activities. I recall @amys then saying that the @IATI-techteam were specifically advising publishers to NOT use related-activity to link between activities from other publishers. Can we confirm if this is the case?
I think this is in line with MFA guidance ( @pelleaardema @Herman ?)? If so, can anyone explain the purpose of code 5 (Third Party) on the RelatedActivityType codelist:
A report by another organisation on the same activity you are reporting (excluding activities reported as part of a financial transaction - e.g. provider-activity-id or a co-funded activity, using code 4)
I think @stolk was interested in this too!
