Using xrefs with Solidworks Electrical

I have been a long time AutoCAD user and am trying to find the analog to the following: I use DWG xrefs within viewports extensively to minimize copying errors.


(For example, I create one DWG and then xref it into 5 other drawings for detail views. This way, when the main drawing is changed, all other drawings get updated. The title block resides in Paperspace and I xref into model space to zoom in to specific areas)

 

I would assume that I should be able to reference one sheet from within a different sheet but cannot find out how to do it.

 

How do I do this within Solidworks Electrical? I am really struggling with this;  to me it is a basic function.

 

Thanks in advance,
