Task creation

As a case agent, when you create a case by using a case template, tasks defined in the template are added to the case. When working on a case, you can add tasks to a case in the following ways:

  • Create adhoc tasks—Create tasks by entering the task information. You cannot create automated tasks by using this option. 
  • Create tasks by using task templates—Create tasks by using predefined information and edit them as required.
