Showing Direct and Indirect Relationships

In the
Hierarchy
view, direct and indirect relationships between records are expressed in hops. A hop is a relationship between records. A direct relationship is one hop, while an indirect relationship is more than one hop. For example, given records A, B, C, and D, the relationship A--D is one hop, A--B--D is two hops, and A--B--C--D is three hops. You can change the number of hops that appears for a selected record.
