IFrame Block

Purpose: Embed something on a profile page that is accessible by a URL.

Example use case: Embed a Google Sheet on a case profile that is unique to that case.

NB: This block is in final beta testing. We do not anticipate any changes that will break or substantially change the existing functionality.

The block automatically generates an internal unique identifier for the profile it is on, so embedding something on Case X will not show anything on Case Y or Case Z.

Users with the appropriate permission see an "Edit" link on the profile that allows them to easily change the URL.

NB: The URL must include a "full address", including the "https://", and the site you are linking to must support embedding its content in an IFrame.

Configuration Options:

* Editable Dispositions - only applicable when the block is on a case profile.

* Start Aux Process - leave this at "None".

* Block Unique ID - do not change this (automatically generated).

* Block Label - the text label, if any, you want to appear above the embedded object.

* Height and Width - set to taste.

* Permitted Roles - only users with one of the selected roles will see the "Edit" link on the profile. On case profiles, assumes the case has a Disposition that matches one selected in the first configuration option.

Iframe Block and Who Owns What (whoownswhat.justfix.nyc)

An outside organization, JustFix.nyc, has compiled information about which landlords own which buildings in NYC, and other information about each address.  The following webinar explains how to use the IFrame Block to embed that helpful information in LegalServer, and automatically use the case's address information to provide your users with enriched information.

You must have the GIS module installed and be using an address block that sets GIS encoding information when saved.
