What is it?
Related links help tie community content together. You can choose to enable a one-way, or two-way relationship between content. A one-way relationship will add a related link to the content you have created, while a two-way relationship will also add a link to the content that is being referenced. Related Content can be added to a file, blog article, calendar event, or wiki article.
When Related Content has been added to content in your community, it will appear in a list on the right-hand side of the page in a window marked, Related Content.
If you have additional information on a topic but the information isn't relevant to everyone following the channel you are posting to, add the additional material as Related Content and mention it in the post as a comment. You can use this within a customer room around content related to the project. This is also a great option for marketing collateral that is closely linked together within a campaign.
