What are relationship tags?

Relationship tags are used for filtering down to show just the relationships that meet specific conditions, scenarios or themes. Relationship tags allow you to filter relationships that belong in one or more sets, like in a Venn diagram.

When to use relationship tags

Often relationships can be applicable under different scenarios. For example the items in a product related story may be related in different ways in different markets (such as UK, USA, Australia, Germany and so on). As there are a large potential number of markets it is not practical to create separate relationship attributes for each. This is a situation in which relationship tags are perfect. However note that relationship tags cannot be used to drive relationship color or thickness so where there is a choice to use relationship attributes or relationship tags, you should normally choose attributes.

Create and manage relationship tags

Relationship tags can be created and edited here in the story set-up. They can also be created when you paste relationship data (which includes a tags column) into the data grid or when editing any item through the Edit item properties panel.

Saving your changes

Save the changes you have made to any of the settings within the Story set-up screens with the OK button or cancel all changes. To undo the set of changes click the undo button on the toolbar.
