Defining watchlists to receive notifications about case updates

As a case agent or a case manager, to receive updates about status or assignment changes to a case, you can add a case to the watchlist. While adding a case to the watchlist, you can select the updates for which you want to receive notifications. Whenever a case is updated, you receive an email, an alert, or both, based on the notification configuration in your profile.

For example, you are working on a case A that is dependent on case B and case C. You add case B and case C to the watchlist and configure your watchlist to receive notifications for case status events. When the status of case B or case C changes, you receive a notification.

Permissions required to add a watch to cases

To add a watch to a case, you must at least have read access to the case.
