Phased rollout


This version is currently available to SaaS customers only. It will be available to on-premises customers soon.

Viewing and updating case details

After a case is created, as a case agent with write access to the case, you can update the case details like summary, category tier, priority, site, and so on. 


While creating a case for reimbursement for an employee, you specify the case summary as Request for reimbursement policy information. After you create the case, the employee requests specifically for the medical reimbursement policy information of the company. To highlight this specification in the case, you change the summary to Request for medical reimbursement policy information.

Other than the basic details of a case, you can also view certain details in the case that provide additional information to analyze the case resolution.
