I am looking for a way to add extra fields to the many many join table between to 2 dataobjects. Basically I want to have a sort field for each relationship which would take an integer I can then easily sort in ascending order.

I am new to SS is there an easy way to do this? I have had a bit of a search around and found this -

Any help, much appreciated
