Document-to-document linking allows users to link related documents that would not be stored in the same folder, allowing users to quickly view a list of all documents linked to the master file with a minimum of clicks.
Documents that are linked together are sometimes referred to as compound documents. For example, a master contract document could be linked to all of its contact changes. Users can quickly view a list of all documents linked to the master file with a minimum of clicks. This allows users to quickly organize documents into logical groups based on the context of the document compared to others in the system.
Linking maintains a parent-child relationship between documents that are linked together. In other words, one document, the «parent,» will serve as the primary document to which all other files, the «children,» will refer. When linking two or more documents, the user must specify the parent document in the linking relationship.
One click on the «linked» hyperlink and you can see all the documents that are linked together. Links are not a one-to-one ratio; documents can be linked to several other documents as secondary or primary links. Using an advanced search, you can search for linked documents.
