Theme Theme UI-Kit applicationsIn the classic Theme Theme UI-Kit applications, with section-based architecture, by default, Pega Platform has two portals for the two most common roles: case manager and case worker. The Case Manager portal displays a case and all the nested subcases and tasks, as well as the associated users and roles. The Case Worker portal allows users to create and process cases that are assigned to them. The Case Manager portal allows users to monitor the case statuses for individual team members or a team queue.
A portal consists of pages that consolidate information for easy access. For example, a portal can include pages for Search, Tags, or Recently accessed items, which allow a user to perform their job more efficiently. The Case Manger portal additionally offers the Dashboard, Reports, and Following standard pages.
While you can use the default portals as-is in your application, some situations require that you customize the layout of the portal or the tools that you present to users. For more information, see Building portals and Organizing the contents of a portal.
- Out-of-the-box portal features for creating and managing cases
Out-of-the-box features in portals help users plan work efficiently and complete common management tasks.
- Creating cases
Meet your business goals by creating cases that users of your application, such as customer service representatives (CSR) resolve to achieve a specific outcome. When you create a case, you ensure that CSRs can perform their work by collecting and processing information from customers.
- Transferring an assignment
You can transfer an assignment from one user to another. For example, you can transfer an assignment to a team member with more experience or less workload. By reassigning work to other members on your team, you can also resolve cases more quickly and effectively.
- Bulk processing
You can use the Bulk actions form in the Case Manager portal to process more than one case at a time. Bulk processing saves time and is less error prone than processing cases individually.
- Reopening a resolved case
Reopen a resolved case if users resolved the case prematurely or erroneously. After reopening the case, you can process and resolve the case again.
- Tagging a case
You can associate a tag with a case. A lock is not required to tag a case. You can tag a case regardless of the case's current status.
- Following a case
Follow a case to receive notifications when users post messages to the case in Pulse. By actively monitoring cases, you can contribute to stakeholder discussions and help resolve cases more quickly.
- Managing case followers
Ensure that relevant stakeholders participate in case discussions by controlling which users follow a case.
- Configuring your dashboard
Configure your dashboard to personalize your workspace and choose the widgets that increase your productivity.
