Adding optional actions to cases
Allow customer service representatives (CSRs) to perform out-of-sequence tasks that do not influence the main events in the case life cycle by supplementing your business processes with optional actions.For example, a customer can give a CSR a new phone number when the CSR processes the Financial History assignment in an Auto Loan case. The CSR can complete the Update Contact Info task to update the phone number without moving the Auto Loan case to a different step or stage.
