Set the status of a case on stage entry

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now set the status of a case when it enters a stage. By setting the status of a case on stage entry, you can communicate to stakeholders how close a stage is to resolution. For example, if a case is in the approval stage, you can set the status of the case to "Under review" when the case enters the stage.

Resolve child cases with the parent case

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now configure a stage to resolve open child cases when the parent case is resolved. Resolving child cases on the resolution of the parent case ensures that no child cases are left open when the parent case reaches the end of its life cycle.

For more information, see:

Conditionally skip a stage

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now define a condition in App Studio and build an expression in Dev Studio that causes a case to skip a stage. The system evaluates the condition or expression at run time and skips the stage if a true value is returned. By skipping the current stage when it is not relevant, you can resolve a case more quickly by moving the case to the next stage in the sequence.

For more information, see:

Conditionally start a process

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now define a condition that causes a case to start a process in a stage. When the condition evaluates to false, the case skips the process. You can resolve cases more quickly by moving a case to the next process in the sequence when the current process is not relevant.

For more information, see:

Conditionally display an optional task

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now define a condition that decides whether an optional task for a case type or a stage is displayed at run time. Optional tasks require additional processing, and by excluding the tasks that are not relevant, you can resolve cases more quickly.

For more information, see:

Conditionally display a supporting process

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now define a condition that causes a case to display a supporting process for the case type or for a stage in the case type. When the condition evaluates to false, the case does not list the process. Supporting processes require additional processing, and by skipping the processes that are not relevant, you can help users resolve cases more quickly.

Send email notifications for goals and deadlines

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can now configure an assignment or approval in a case type to send email notifications to the users associated with the case when the goals and deadlines are not met. You can create the subject and content for the notification message. The system sends email notifications when the suggested and required completion times for an assignment or approval elapse. By notifying relevant users about goals and deadlines, you can ensure that service-level agreements are strictly enforced during case processing.

For more information, see:

Search added for case data

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can enable search for individual case types. When search is enabled for a case type, all text in the case data is searched, making it easy for your application users to find work items.

For information about enabling search for a case type, see Including indexed data during case search.

Use repositories as sources for File data sets

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

You can configure remote repositories, such as Amazon S3 or JFrog Artifactory, or a local repository, as data sources for File data sets. By referencing an external repository from a File data set, you enable a parallel load from multiple CSV or JSON files, which removes the need for a relational database for transferring data to Pega Platform™ in the cloud.

For more information, see Creating a File data set record for files on repositories and Configuring a remote repository as a source for a File data set.

Define a taxonomy by using the Prediction Studio interface

Valid from Pega Version 8.1

Create a topic hierarchy and define keywords for each topic in Prediction Studio faster and more intuitively than by editing a CSV file. If you have already defined a taxonomy in a CSV file, you can import that file and modify existing topics and keywords by using the Prediction Studio interface.

For more information, see Creating-keyword-based topics for discovering keywords and Tutorial: Configuring a topic detection model for discovering keywords.
