Matrix Profiles

You can use the Relationship Matrix as a monitoring tool, to help in tracking the development of elements and relationships in particular Packages or pairs of Packages over time. In this case you would re-use the same combinations of field settings many times. It is very easy to store a combination of settings as a Matrix Profile, so that later you can recall it for use whenever you need it.
