Hello all,

i defined a custom aspect with an associative relationship:

<aspect name="custom:IPR">
         <title>Individuele Praktijk Reflectie</title>
         <properties>
            <property name="custom:StudentNaam">
               <title>Naam van student</title>
               <type>d:text</type>
            </property>
            <property name="custom:StudentNummer">
               <title>Studentnummer</title>
               <type>d:int</type>
            </property>
            <property name="custom:Voltijd">
               <title>Voltijd student</title>
               <type>d:boolean</type>
            </property>
            <property name="custom:DatumInschrijving">
               <title>Datum van inschrijving</title>
               <type>d:date</type>
            </property>
         </properties>
         <associations>
            <association name="custom:Checklist">
               <title>Verwijziging de bijbehorende checklist</title>
               <target>
                  <class>cm:content</class>
                  <mandatory>false</mandatory>
                  <many>false</many>
               </target>
            </association>
         </associations>
         
         
         
      </aspect>

The association is displayed on the property page of a document that has this aspect applied, but my big question is: what to do with it ?? You can't even click it. Why would an end user go to all the trouble: go to property page, search document, associate the document. I am just wondering, how do real world implementations make use of this functionality?? It just doesn't make sense at all..
