Add existing items as relations

The relations feature lets you create links between documents (items) that are related to each other.

Related items can be of the same or a different document class. They are displayed in your document’s Properties tab.

As a contributor, you can add existing items as relations in your document. You can also remove them. Learn more: Remove relations.

– The relations feature isn't available in Team Folders. It's available in Secured Folders and Document Management libraries if, for the current document class, an administrator has configured at least one relation and selected one or more relations for display.
Learn more: Configure relations and Select relations to display and define their order.
