The Link to Existing option allows end-users to rely on, or share, data across assessments and applications, preventing assessing the same objects multiple times. When this feature is enabled, users can add previously assessed data when scoping and launching another assessment (e.g., sharing controls across business units or between multiple applications, like Risk Management and Compliance Management). Users can also add previously assessed objects via an Advanced Relationship Table.
Admins can enable the Option to Link to Existing toggle beside an object type from the Workflow tab of the Edit Assessments page. See the Assessments Workflows section for more information.
