You can relate any of the base Content Types, each of which with its own specific fieldtype. They all extend this core Relate fieldtype.
- Taxonomy Terms - for Taxonomy Terms
- Collection - for Entries
- Pages - for Pages
- Users - for Users
- Assets - for Assets (it doesn’t extend this Relate fieldtype)

Tags mode (the first field in the screenshot) is a more traditional tagging syntax. It will refine the selections as you type.
Panes mode (the second field) shows the available values and selections in separate fields.
The maximum number of items that may be selected. Setting this to
1 will change the UI to a dropdown.

How the values should appear. You may use variables within the string, eg.
mode string *tags*
