Creating Additional Case Assignees

The primary person responsible for handling a particular case is specified on the Cases record's General tab. However, in many situations, more than one employee is involved in resolving a case. Therefore, an organization can specify information about other people who are working on a case on the Cases record's Assignees tab.

Follow these steps to add information about other assignees to a case:

  1. Open the Cases record, if not already opened.
  2. Select the Assignees tab.
  3. Click the New icon in the toolbar to open a new Assignees record.
  4. Enter the name of the employee in the Employee field.
  5. Select the role for the assignee from the Role drop-down list.
  6. In the Role Rank field, specify the employee's rank within the given role for the case.
    • An organization can use this field to specify a relative degree of responsibility for an assignment if multiple employees have the same Role for a particular case.
  7. In the Start Date field, specify the date when the employee was assigned his or her role in the case.
  8. If applicable, specify an End Date for when the employee's role, in this case, should end.
    • You can also use this field to track when an employee's participation in this case actually ended.
  9. Enter a Description of the employee's assignment for this case.

    Note that the Auto Added option is reserved for future use with automatic assignment functionality. When an automatic assignment is implemented, this option can indicate if a particular employee was automatically assigned to the case by the system.
