Link an Origin Correspondence Item or Origin RFI to an Existing Correspondence Item


To link an origin correspondence item or origin RFI to an existing correspondence item. 


Correspondence items and RFIs often lead to other correspondences. Sometimes users want to link the origin (source) item to the resulting item for anyone who wants more information about why the resulting item was created. The 'Link Existing Origin Item' action on correspondence items enables users to quickly name the correspondence item or RFI that was the source or reason for the current correspondence item. The linked relationship shows up in the 'Links' section of both the origin item and the resulting item.
