Case participants are people, businesses, and organizations that are involved in a case. By managing case participants, you can define their relationship with a case and share important case updates with them.
For example, your company grants car loans to the employees of an organization. To send loan updates to key members of the organization, you can add these members as participants in the stakeholder role for Car Loan cases.
