Quick Tip: UPK Player Search URL
By Marc Santosusso on Aug 16, 2010
Here's a quick and easy way to deliver a filtered list of content to UPK users.
Using the UPK Player, find a search term that results in the desired list of content. For instance, search for "payroll" (remove the quotes) if you wanted to find content related to payroll. You can share this search with UPK users by providing them with the following URL:
Obviously, you will need to replace UPK.Content.Location with the server name and path to your deployed UPK content. When users access this URL, they will see the Player with the search term "payroll" filled into the search field and the search results below.
As an author, you can use keywords or bubble text to create groupings of content that can be linked in this way. For instance, if you wanted to group several topics together, you would simply add the desired keyword to each topic--I'll use "group1" as my example keyword. After you publish the outline of content, do a search for your keyword, in my example, "group1", and verify the desired topics are listed. Now you can create a link to this list of content using the search term as I described above. Here's what the URL would look like in my example:
This is a great way to share a specific selection of content with UPK Player users. Write a comment to share with us how you will use this in your UPK deployment.
