Relating items is useful to group items that are similar to each others, in order to review and annotate them all at once.

There are two types of related items: 

  • Main item: There can be only one per relation. 
  • Secondary items: There can be several items related to a main item. 

Adding a relation

 To an existing item

  1. From an item’s page, click the link to “Add Related Item” below the item card.
  2. Select the option 'Add existing item'.
  3. Use the search bar to look up the title of the item you want to relate.
  4. Select the item in the list. By default, the item will be added as secondary item.

To a new item

  1. From an item’s page, click the link to “Add Related Item” below the item card.
  2. Make sure the option 'Add new item' is selected.
  3. Select the type of item you want to add.
  4. Add the item. By default, the item will be added as secondary item.

Changing the relation between items

From the action menu of each secondary item, you can edit its relation to the main item: 

  • Promote to principal item:  Switch the relationship so that the secondary item becomes the main item and vice versa.
  • Break relationship: Cancel the relationship between two items. Their status is now independent.

Status of related items

  • When the status of a main item that was added via Check Message is changed, the status of all secondary items is changed at the same time.
  • The status of secondary items is always the same as the status of the main item, and cannot be changed independently.

Sending batch reports for all related items

If one or several items in the group have been submitted via Check Message tip-lines, the report for the main item will be sent to all users having requested secondary items. Learn more sending report to tip-line users here.
