Linking and unlinking

Use linkages to tie related findings together. Linkages also build the Network.

Create linkages in Findings

  1. Navigate to Findings.
  2. Select one or more findings.
  3. Click Link from the action bar.
  4. Select from the linking options. 

Linking options

  • Link to each other: Instantly links the selected findings.
  • Link to an existing finding: Lets you choose an existing finding to link the selected finding(s) to.
  • Link to a new finding: Lets you create a new finding to link the selected finding(s) to.
  • Link to an existing Collection: Lets you choose an existing Collection to link the selected finding(s) to.
  • Link to a new Collection: Lets you create a new Collection to link the selected finding(s) to.

View linkages

Created linkages are visible inside the finding and in the Network.

Within a finding

  1. Open a finding.
  2. Scroll down to Linked items.
  3. View all linkages.

In Network

  1. Navigate to Network.
  2. View linkages between Megatrends, Trends, and Signal Clusters.

Edit linkages

Use the link editor within each finding and Collection to create and remove linkages.

Create linkages with the link editor

  1. Open a finding or a Collection.
  2. Scroll down to Linked items.
  3. Click on Manage linkages.
  4. Navigate to AI Picks or Unlinked and select items.
  5. Click Link.

Remove linkages with the link editor

  1. Open a finding or a Collection.
  2. Scroll down to Linked items.
  3. Click on Manage linkages.
  4. Navigate to Linked and select items.
  5. Click Unlink.

Quick link from AI picks

AI picks provides linking suggestions from Findings and Sources.

  1. Open a finding or a Collection.
  2. Scroll down to AI picks.
  3. Click the link icon to link a finding.

Locating unlinked findings

It's a best practice to link related findings as soon as you add them to FIBRES.

If you need to locate unlinked findings later on, there are two ways to do so:

In Findings

  1. Navigate to Findings.
  2. Click on the filter icon.
  3. Under Advanced, select Unlinked findings.

In Network

  1. Navigate to Network.
  2. Look for unlinked Megatrends, Trends, and Signal Clusters.
