Learn how to view the reference list, the backlinks list and reference relationships of a document.
I. Function overview
At the bottom of each document, you can see the documents that are mentioned and backlinked by this document, as well as the reference relationship map between these documents. When you reference a document in your document, a bi-directional link will be automatically established between the documents. This helps you efficiently manage your documents, discovering hidden connections to promote information flows and inspire creative ideas.
- 1.Mention a document
You can paste a document link, or @mention the document name.
In the Backlinks list, you can view the documents you have permission for and reference the current document, as well as the original text referenced. You can click the referenced text to navigate to the exact location of the referenced text in the document, or you can click ▼ or ▶ before the document to expand or collapse the referenced list.
Note: The Backlinks list only displays the documents that the collaborator has permission to access and varies from user to user to ensure privacy.
- 3.Mentioned Docs
In the Mentioned Docs list, you can view the documents that the current document references.
- 4.Document relationship
In the document graph view, you can view the reference relationships between the documents you have permission for. The line connecting two documents stands for a reference relationship. A blue line indicates the “being referenced” relationship, while a yellow line indicates the “referencing” relationship.
Note: The Graph view only displays the documents that the collaborator has permission to access and varies from user to user to ensure privacy.
Q: Where can I view the relationship between documents?
A: You have three ways to view the relationship between documents:
- 1.Upper-right corner of the Docs homepage: A graph view with the recently viewed document as the center is displayed to show its related documents.
- 2.Upper-right corner of the document page: A graph view with the currently viewed document as the center is displayed to show its related documents.
- 3.Bottom list of a document: A graph view with the currently viewed document as the center is displayed to show its related documents.
Q: How can I view the relationship of other documents?
A: You have three ways to change the central document without exiting the graph view:
- 1.Click: Click the icon of the document whose reference relationships you'd like to view.
- 2.Hover: Hover the mouse over the icon of the document whose reference map you'd like to view.
- 3.Search: In the search box at the top of the graph view page, enter the document name and click the search button to view the reference relationships of the document.
Q: What do the dots on the connecting lines in a reference map stand for?
A: The dots on the lines indicate the direction of reference. If the dot flows from document A to document B, it means document A references document B.
Q: Can I open a document in the graph view directly?
A: Yes. Double-click the icon of the document, and you can view the document content in a new tab on your browser.
Q: Will the document graph view introduce the risk of information leakage?
A: No. When a user views the document reference relationships, they can only see the document that they have permission for, so you don’t need to worry about information leakage.
Q: Can I disable the bi-directional link feature?
A: Yes. Users with permission to edit a document can hide the Mentioned Docs list. Once hidden, the list will become invisible to collaborators, but they can view the reference relationship of the document in the graph view. If you need to show the Mentioned Docs list, click the ... Icon in the upper-right corner of the document and turn on the Show Mentioned Docs list switch.
