Adding resolution codes to categorize resolved cases

As a case business analyst, you can create resolution codes referring to a Knowledge Article for cases so that other case agents can search for cases based on the resolution code to help resolve their cases faster. For example:

  • For facilities-based cases, define resolution codes such as: Equipment Failure, Equipment Replacement, Request for Stationery. The resolution codes help to segregate cases based on equipment requests, personal item requests, or service requests. 
  • For a Visa Approval case, define a resolution code such as: Refer Knowledge Article: 38023009 to provide reference to knowledge articles that can be used for cases related to visa approvals. This helps other case agents viewing similar cases to view the referenced Knowledge Article in the resolution and use it to resolve their cases. It can also help review the usage of the Knowledge Article for resolving cases. 

You can make it mandatory for case agents to add a resolution code when resolving a case by selecting the appropriate option in a case template. For cases created by using the template, a case agent must select a resolution code before resolving the case. For more information about creating a case template, see creating case templates, task templates, and adding dynamic fields.

Case managers can review the reports for the case numbers based on the resolution code.
