Target OVSD Browser?

Is there a way to have a smart action open a website WITHIN OVSD? I know that the primary window can display URLs. We've got a knowledge management database online which is accessed through a smart action. This URL is dynamic as it grabs information from the ticket, otherwise I'd use a URL shortcut in the shortcut bar.

Any suggestions?

Re: Target OVSD Browser?

You can open an external browser with a dynamic value. I'm not sure if this is acceptable because your note said "WITHIN", I don't know if there is a non-static link mechanism for an internal browser.

Here's and example of the external action - this uses the "Internet Explorer" application definition.

"http://home/webaps/default.asp?optAttribute=uid&txtValue=[Search code]"

Hope that helps.

Re: Target OVSD Browser?

bpgraham - currently this is what we do, but we were wondering if we could open it within the OVSD window, just to eliminate some of the screen clutter.
