When you define a relationship between the current change and another change, the other change request might also have one or more changes related to it. On the Relationships tab opened from the Copy Related Relationships form, you can see the related change's other relationships. If you determine that any of these other relationships need to be related to the current change, you can define the relationship from this form.
By doing this, you can more thoroughly document the change relationships.
