When you branch documents, traces may or may not be propagated automatically. How traces are propagated to branched documents depends on how your administrator configured the behavior of document branching in your environment. For example, an individual document with traces between items contained in the document may be set up to propagate automatically. However, if the document you are branching is more complex and has traces to items within other documents of varying types, for example, test cases, traces may have to be propagated manually after the branch occurs. To learn more about how and when to propagate traces manually, see Propagating Traces to Branched Documents.
