Working With Items in the Relationships View
When the Relationships view is expanded to show related items, you can perform tasks on an item by selecting it and then performing a procedure described in the table.
The Relationship view is the only view that supports following branch relationships in the structure field. You can perform individual edits and batch edits of Branches and Branched From rows. However, you cannot add, delete, move, reorder, or change relationship flags for these rows. These same operations also cannot be performed on these other special fields in the Document model: Contains, Contained By, References, and Referenced By.
If you are viewing relationships for a historical item, the relationships shown for the item depend on the As Of date indicated in the Item Detail view header. For more information, see Viewing a Historical Item.
Visibility permissions and relevance rules apply to the fields on items displaying in the Relationships view. Visibility rules restrict access to specific information based on project and item type. Relevance rules are a set of field conditions that determine which fields you can view. You see only fields that you have permission to view.
