Define a Life Cycle

By organizing your business logic into stages, processes, and steps, you can create the different paths that a case follows from creation to resolution.

    Read this help topic to understand the different paths that a case follows from creation to resolution.

    This help topic outlines that a stage in a life cycle is a high-level phase that a case can enter at run time. By using stages, you can add structure to your case types or replace legacy implementations that rely on a central, complex flow.

  • 8

    This help topic explains that process in a stage is a flow, or a sequence of events, that models a business process. By adding processes to a stage, you can define the paths that users take as they move a case through its life cycle.

  • 9

    This help topic explains how steps in a process represent the tasks that users, your application, or an external application perform to move a case closer to resolution. By using steps, you can refine the life cycle of a case type.

Designing a User Interface

The user interface is the most broadly visible aspect of your application.  As a result, the user interface you design and build affects users' productivity, acceptance, accuracy, and satisfaction, and so is a critical factor in implementation success.
