Controlling the User Interface Without Scripting
Gives you the possibility to send a link to another user that will open a specific panel with the information you want. With this protocol you may send a link/url to e.g. a specific appointment on a specific company to another user. You can also use the SO Protocol in your own scripts to avoid instanciating the SOApplication object.
The url is built up like this: superoffice:where.where...?what=id&what=id&...
To change to contact with contact_id=2, you use this url: superoffice:contact.main?contact_id=2
Works for the main panels:
Force Application window to top
Force refresh of all caches, or reload of some caches
The Window name from SOAdmin / Lists / Application dialog may also be used in an URL to open the webpanel.

If the same web panel is not located on the main card, but in the archive, the SOProtocol looks like
If refresh the client
To make a link that forces the SuperOffice window to the front of the screen, add Activate to the end of the modes:
