Great plug-in! I love it! Here’s my suggestion
I would like to see a drop-down list of “Organizations” in admin create/edit that attaches an “Individual” contact to an “Organization”.
In the front end, the “Organization” would have a link-able list of the “Individual” contacts associated with it. In admin, you could also see a list of attached “Individual” contacts associated with the “Organization”.
You would first have to create the “Organization” if you wanted to add an “Organization” to an “Individual”.
Thanks for listening! Hopefully I will be contacted if this extension or feature is ever created.

You can already do this.
Add the Org.
When creating an entry, add the desired org name to the entry.
From here you have a few options depending on your specific needs.
You can use the organization filter shortcode option to display a list of users assigned to a specific org like so:
[connections organization="My Org Name"]
You could turn on the org name linking feature on the Connections : Settings admin page under the Advanced tab. With this on, the org name for every individual will now be links. When a user clicks that link, they will be shown a list individual assigned to the org.
Another option is to link directly to org lists; like so:
http://my-domain.com/directory-home-page/org/My Org NameYou can even add this links as custom links to your WordPress nav using the Menu editor.
Hope that helps.
