Adding optional actions to stages

Updated on May 11, 2022

Provide customer service representatives (CSRs) with an ability to perform out-of-sequence tasks when your business process enters a specific stage by adding optional actions to stages.

For example, if your business process is to review a job application, you can create a stage Candidate details that includes the Collect personal details, Collect education history, and Collect working experience processes. If a job candidate gives a CSR a new phone number, the CSR can update the number at any point when processing the stage.

For relevant training materials, see the Adding optional actions to a workflow module on Pega Academy.

  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.
  2. In the case working area, on the Workflow tab, click Optional actions.
  3. In the Stage-only actions section, under the stage that you want to supplement with an optional action, click Action.
  4. In the Action menu, select the type of action that you want to add:
    • To add a task, click Collect information.
    • To add a process, click Process, and then add steps by clicking Step.

      For more information about configuring steps, see Adding single steps to processes.
