Associating personas with case types
To clearly visualize the participants of your Microjourney, associate personas with case types in your application. By adding personas to a Microjourney, you communicate which users are involved in each phase of your business process, and which channels they can access.For example, for a hiring process, you can associate a candidate persona and an HR worker persona. This association indicates that each persona can access different portals in the case, different information about the process, and perform different actions. While the candidate only provides personal details and uploads necessary documents, the HR worker processes the details, runs background checks, routes the case for approval to a manager, and resolves the case.
- Define a case type. For more information, see Case types.
- To reuse existing personas, define personas for your application. For more information, see Creating personas.
When you associate a persona with a case type, you create a draft relationship between the persona and the case type. To start processing your case, you need to implement the relationship by granting the persona access to channels.
