How do I use the UniCourt Search Lightning component?

The AdvoLogix UniCourt Integration provides an easy way to search for cases within your AdvoLogix environment by using a dedicated Lightning Component.  This component can be placed on the Home Page, a Record Page or the Utility Bar of your Lightning application.

BETA

The AdvoLogix integration for UniCourt is currently in an open beta phase.  The beta phase serves one main purpose: to test performance and identify issues.  During this phase, we encourage users to send any issues, suggestions, or ideas regarding the UniCourt integration to support@advologix.com.
