Use document relations

The document relations feature enables you to create links between documents that are related to each other. Document relations are used to centralize documents on a specific subject.

Related documents can be of the same or a different document class. They are displayed in the document’s Properties panel.

- The relations feature is not available in Team Folder libraries.
- Only administrators can create and configure document relations.
