Many people are using the Inline Entity Form module, which provides field widgets that allow you to create, edit, or delete a referenced entity from the parent form.

If you reference CiviCRM contacts via an Entity Reference field and use Inline Entity Form, you’ll often want to include the ability for the user to create...
