A faster way to add a relation to the model using copy/paste

As an administrator of a Relatics Workspace, you want to enter information models quickly and efficiently. Normally, you would use the standard selection to add a relation on the detail page of an element. This requires quite a few clicks in the tree to find the element you want to create a relation to. While configuring, I stumbled upon a lifehack that lets you create relations more quickly.

Three steps to define relations by copy/paste

Step 1: In the model, navigate to the element (e.g. Document) that you’re creating the relation to, and choose “Copy”:

01_relatics_copy_element

Step 2: Go to the detail page of an element (e.g. Issue) and choose “Paste” in the table of relations:

02_relatics_paste_element_for_relation

Step 3: Enter the remaining details for the relation you have created:

03_relatics_copy_paste_element_as_relation
