Hyland Community

Community.Hyland.com is your go-to repository of information about all things OnBase, including current basis licensing information, all modules, versions, and maintenance coverage periods. Plus, Community includes a robust social platform where you can ask questions and get expert advice from your peers to most of the questions you have regarding OnBase. You must register for a Hyland Profile before you can log in.

You can also find Module Reference Guides (MRGs) on Community, which are excellent resources to help you understand how to install, configure, and use OnBase.

Here are some additional useful links on Community for you to explore:


Training.Hyland.com is a massive library filled with training videos to learn about Hyland products, modules, new features and functionality, and more. Hyland offers self-paced web-based training (WBT) courses and eLearning modules to enhance your knowledge. You will also find an OnBase Quick Looks section filled with five-minute videos that provide training and demos. You must be an OnBase customer and already have a Hyland Profile to gain access to the training. You can register for a Hyland Profile here. Also, not all the training courses are free; the ones labeled Premium are only available to customers who have paid for a Premium Subscription to Hyland Training (more on this below).

We also recommend reviewing this excellent training series presented by OnBase Support members on some of the troubleshooting techniques and utilities we use to diagnose and troubleshoot support issues. These presentations are good for new and veteran employees in a technical role such as Installations, Support, Sales Engineer, etc.

Not sure where to start? Regardless of your skill level or experience, Learning Paths, available within Training.Hyland.com, can direct you to your ideal starting point. These tools help you determine which of the many courses are best applicable to your role. If you’re brand new to OnBase, we recommend checking out this video on pre-installation intro to OnBase:

User and Community of Practice Groups

Hyland and Naviant both have user groups that bring together customers in the same industry to connect, discuss, and share about OnBase. Hyland User Groups are sometimes called VOGUES (Vertical OnBase Group of User Experts). Once you have a Hyland Profile, you can register to join a Hyland VOGUE by visiting the Hyland Community and navigate to Connect and scroll down to User Groups.

Naviant has two Community of Practice Groups, one for advanced users with more complex solutions, and another for Local & Tribal Government. Each of these groups is invite-only and for our most experienced clients with advanced OnBase solutions. Clients facilitate the meetings, and they get together a few times a year to share and learn from each other’s experiences.
