Link risks, issues, files, or deliverables to tasks

< More Project help

As you work on a project, you may find it useful to capture risks, track issues, upload files, and list deliverables on the project site. Sometimes, these risks, issues, files, and deliverables are tied to specific tasks within the project. By linking these items to their related tasks, you give yourself a reminder of where you need to keep an eye on things, or where you have files that you might need to refer to or keep updated.

You can link things together by starting with the risk, issue, file, or deliverable, or by starting with the task.

Starting from the risk, issue, file, or deliverable you've already added

  1. Click the name of the issue, risk, file, or deliverable, to view it.

    Click the risk in the Title column
  2. Click Add Related Item.
