OpenKM - let set relations among documents

Written by Ana Canteli on 24 May 2016

In OpenKM we can link documents based on any relationship.

3 types of relationships are considered:

  • Equivalence: to represent symmetrical relations
  • Parent – child / Child – parent: to represent the origin of or the source of.
  • Multiple: to represent relationships among files.

The links can be setted among any file within OpenKM. To do this, the admin panel has the Relations button, to freely define the relationships that documentation can develop in our organization.

Once the relationships has been defined, in the OpenKM Desktop we can make use of the Relations tap, in the Properties panel of any file, and set the relation required.


For more information, please have a look on the Relations video, available in the OpenKM Channel.
