Use document relations

The relations feature enables you to link different documents associated to the document you are editing. These documents are called related documents and can be of the same or a different document class. Displayed in the document’s Properties panel, these related documents are a way to centralize documents on a specific subject. 

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