Unity Pop is used to send links or shortcuts to content within OnBase to another user via external mail. There are two types of Unity Pops: Unity Pop files and Unity Pop links.
Unity Pop files are XML files that reference content in OnBase. Unity Pop files are the legacy method of creating Unity Pops.
Unity Pop links are URI links to content in OnBase. Unity Pop links are the recommended method of sending Unity Pops. Unity Pop links do not require a physical file and, therefore, do not take up disk space as a Unity Pop file would. Additionally, links can be easily shared by copying and pasting them into websites, documents, etc.
Do not switch to Unity Pop links if existing Unity Pop files are still in use by your organization.
To those sending and receiving Unity Pop files and links, the differences between the two types of Unity Pops will not be apparent. Both methods are sent through the Send To | Mail Recipient (As Link) menu option and, when opened, the Unity Client is launched to display the content in the appropriate layout.
A Concurrent Client license is consumed while viewing Unity Pop files and links.
The configuration of Unity Pop files and Unity Pop links differ. The sections below outline the configuration of each Unity Pop method.
