Creating child case types in Dev Studio
Define a more structured work processing in your organization by creating child case types. When you create a child case type, you define a set of actions that are dependent on the main business process, and that users need to complete before the parent case type reaches a resolution. As a result, you avoid creating long and complex case types and you deliver more granular and flexible applications that are easier to maintainFor example, a process of hiring an employee for a managerial position might require more complex and longer background check. By defining the background check as a child case type, you have the possibility to reuse this business scenario in only the relevant circumstances. A case of hiring a manager can reach a resolution only after the child case of running a background check completes.
