Pages Linking Here
Tool that shows pages linked in autocomplete and rich text fields to a specific page or document.

You can use it to check if your content is well-connected across, and to make sure you don’t break links if you plan to remove pages or documents.
This tool shows pages in which you've added links through autocomplete fields, such as in the Additional Resources or Related Links areas as well as in rich text fields.
