You are here: Stack Types >Link Two or More Stacks

Links can be used when you want to maintain a connection between two Stacks belonging to the same Stack Type or different Stack Types. In other words, you want them to be loosely linked and not strongly linked. You can link a single Stack with multiple Stacks.

 

To Link a Stack to Existing Stacks

1.In Globodox, select Workspace > Stack Types in the Navigation pane.
2.Now, select a Stack Type from the Stack Types node. The Stacks of the selected Stack Type will now be displayed in the right pane.
3.Select the Stack that you want to relate to a document. The Stack will now be displayed in the Details pane.
4.Click the Links tab on the left bar of the Stack Details pane. The Links pane will now be displayed.
5.The Stacks that are already linked to the selected Stack will be displayed in the Linked Stacks section. Click the Link button and select the Link existing Stack option to link the document to existing documents. The Look Up window will be launched.
6.Select the Stack from the Look for drop-down and type a word which best describes the Stack in the Look for box and click the Find button.
7.The Stack that contains the word that you have entered in the Look for box will be displayed in the Available Data list.
8.Select the Stack in the Available Data list. Use this button to add the selected Stack to the Selected Data list and use this button to remove the Stack from the Selected Data list and move it back to the Available Data list.
9.Click the OK button to select the Stack. The selected Stack will now be displayed in the Linked Stack list.

 
Notes:

When you link a Stack with other Stacks, loose links are created between them. This means if you delete a Stack, the linked Stacks will not be deleted.
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 a Stack and a document. For more information, see Relate a Stack to a Document.
