This is becoming more important when I share my tree for autosomal DNA tests. Just sharing pedigrees is not enough because not everyone can trace their ancestry back as far as I can, and I have descendants of many collateral ancestors that I want to share.
Just a Y/N tag would be helpful, but if there is a way to copy the results of the automatic relationship tag, that would be fine, too. If someone is related to me in multiple ways, it would be OK to record the entry as "multiple."

If all you want is Y/N information, a Flag is generally better. It can be used to create Accents on your TMG screens to color-code so you can tell at a glance. So-called "Related-by" Flags are popular, and are defined in somewhat different ways by various users. My method is described in an article on my website. The Secondary Output of the List of People report makes it fairly easy to set the Flag for everyone in your Project.
But Flags cannot be output in most reports, so if report output beyond the Individual Detail report and List of People report is needed, you may need to use a Tag. There is no automatic way to create such Tag for everyone.
