Adding a new property to the view

Add a new account or policy property to the Customer Inquiry view so that CSRs can quickly provide that information to customers. To add a new property, create a new section that consists of the customer inquiry check box and the property.

  1. In App Studio, open the Customer Inquiry section in Design mode:

    1. In the header of App Studio, click Preview to launch the Interaction Portal.

    2. In the header of App Studio, click New Demo Screen Pops Demo Pop - Connor , and then click Accept.

      When modifying interaction rules from App Studio, remember that the changes apply only to the currently open interaction type. In this case, the demo pop is a phone interaction, and the changes that you make will be saved to the rule for the phone channel only, for example, PegaCA-Work-Interaction-Call. To modify the Customer Inquiry for other channels, start an interaction of that type in the Interaction Portal, and then switch to Design mode.
    3. On the Account tab of the Customer composite, click the Customer Inquiry toggle to turn on the feature.

    4. In the header of App Studio, click Design to start design mode.

  2. Hover the cursor over the entire Customer inquiry section, and then click the Edit this section icon as shown in the following figure:
