Follow Case

Quick Links

Workflow enables you to follow cases for which you have view permissions. Administrators configure user permissions that enable you to, or restrict you from viewing or editing cases, or both.

When you have permissions to view a case, Workflow displays the follow this case checkbox on various case action forms. We also display a Follow Case option on the Case Tools menu and allow you to apply the Follow Case action in the Mass Update wizard. When you follow a case, Workflow automatically adds you to the list of recipients who receive an email notification when other users perform actions on the case.

Note: When a user performs an action, they are able to modify the notification recipients. If that user removes you from the notification list on a case you are following, you will not receive an email notification of those changes.
