Can't edit related records when current employer has a pending membership
I originally posted this in #14 (closed) and Eileen suggested it might be a separate issue.
Using Civi 5.1 and D7. An org record exists and has a pending membership (created through a contribution page and opted to pay later). the membership is configured such that individuals linked via 'employed by' inherit the membership.
There are several related individual records, with the org as current employer. In anticipation of the payment being made and the membership going live, we want to edit the individual records to add further detail (just stuff like Job title, etc.) When trying to save any edits, we get the error message:
"The membership cannot be saved because the status cannot be calculated for start_date: null end_date null join_date null as at 2018-05-25 10:40:37"
The only workaround seems to be to edit the membership record and give it a start date and then override the status of the membership so that it remains pending.
