Adding dynamic groups for categorizing dynamic fields

As a case business analyst, you can add dynamic groups to a case or task template to help case agents to categorize dynamic fields and view them in an organized manner. Case agents can view dynamic groups when they create a case or task by using the templates.

For example, an employee wants to apply for Paid Time Off (PTO). A case business analyst creates a dynamic field group PTO details in the Apply PTO case template. The case business analyst adds dynamic fields such as PTO start date and PTO end date to the group. A case agent creates a case for the employee by using the Apply PTO template. While creating the case, the agent updates the dynamic fields in the PTO details dynamic field group based on the employee's response.

For information about how to create dynamic fields, see Adding dynamic fields for storing additional case information.

You can add new dynamic groups in a case or task template by using the following ways:

  • Add new groups to dynamic group library, and use them in case or task template.
  • Add new groups to a case or task template directly.
    When you add a new dynamic group in a case or task template, by default, the group is not added to the dynamic group library.
