Configuring views for cases
Display relevant information and gather data from users by creating views for cases and associating the views with case types. When you create views, you decide what fields the users see and how they interact with the fields as the case moves towards a resolution.
To save time, you can reuse dynamic views, which are standard forms that your application automatically manages for each case type that you define. By default, the dynamic view displays the fields in the contextual data model during different events, such as case creation and resolution. You can edit a dynamic view to ensure that your case meets your specific business needs. You can reuse the following default dynamic views:
- Prompts a user to provide information about a case, before processing the first step in the case life cycle.
- Provides controls for modifying case information at run time. Applications display this view with the Edit details label.
- Presents case information to a user in a read-only format. Applications display this view with the Case information label.
To increase flexibility and efficiency of your application, you can create your own custom views, and then associate them with steps in your case type. For example, in your case view, you can include fields that are read-only, such as a case ID, and fields that a user fills out, such as personal details or a phone number.
- Configuring dynamic views
You can configure dynamic views that your application displays when users proceed through a case. By changing the default fields in these views, you can customize the forms that users access when they create, update, or review the case.
- Building forms for case types
You capture user input in a case by building forms. When you create, configure, and organize relevant fields in a form, you can clearly communicate to users the tasks that they need to perform to process an assignment in a case.
- Skipping forms to collect information before case processing
Speed up case creation and provide flexibility for your cases by skipping the Create dynamic view. When you need to capture user input as a part of case processing, you can skip the Create dynamic view. In that scenario, the case enters the first stage immediately, while users provide information during case processing. Then you can create the form to collect information from users to precisely meet your specific needs.
