1. Open any document as administrator. You should be asked to confirm automatic creation of the Chronicle node types. Click OK to do so.

['sophora-content-nt:chronicleEventRef'] > 'sophora-nt:reference'

3. In the "Base" tab document, add the new reference type sophora-content-nt:chronicleEventRef.

4. Configure the reference type sophora-content-nt:chronicleEventRef:
