Links can be used when you do not want to relate or add a document to a Stack, but you want to maintain a connection between them so that you can refer to documents from its linked stack and vice versa.

Notes:

When you link a Stack with a document, a loose link is created between the two. This means if you delete a Stack, the documents linked to it will not be deleted and vice versa.
You can click the Stack displayed in the Linked Stacks list to open it in the Stack Details window.
You can create a strong link between Stack and a document. For more information, see Relate a Stack to a Document.
