Concepts

Soiree provides the ability to see where a Soiree item is being used. This can be useful if you need to understand the potential impact of a change you need to make or if you simply want to explore a product to see how the pieces are related.

Soiree also provide a convenient way to copy an item’s id to the clipboard. There are times when you may need the ID and it saves time and improves accuracy to have Soiree hand you the ID in the clipboard.

The best way to learn about these features is to use them so let’s jump into the exercises.
