You can make an object open automatically whenever it is unread (or contains unread items) and the container in which it is located is opened. This is useful, for example, for providing a document that describes the parent container. The first time someone opens this container, the document opens immediately.
The following objects can open automatically:
• an unread object, such as a message
• a container that contains unread objects
• an unread link to another object (the target object).
The link opens the target object.
To make an object open automatically, select the object's "Auto open" property.
