Creating Powerful Relationships

  • Updated

One of the most helpful features of Hudu is the ability to create powerful relationships between assets. You have the ability to map out your documentation and create an actionable breadcrumb so navigating large amounts of documentation is simple.

There are two primary ways of linking information in Hudu:

  1. Using the Related Items tab.
  2. Using Asset Links

Relating Items

The Related Items tab is the first and simplest way of relating between entities and can be found on the right-hand sidebar after clicking on an asset. It supports all entities outside of companies, whether it be an Article, Asset, Process, or Password inside or outside the company.

Why Use This?

Use the Related Items Tab for relations when:

  1. You want to link to other entities, such as Articles, Passwords, Processes, etc.
  2. You want inverse relations created between entities.
  3. Your related items require extended descriptions to make sense of why they are related.
  4. You don't want to have to create a field specifically for related items or don't have the required permission rights in order to create a new field.
