Enterprise CRM Service Console: Manage Cases from Queues

What Cases you should be accessing and which Cases will be available to you will vary per your internal business processes. 

This article is intended as a general overview on how to navigate the Service Console to get different Case Queue Lists and get to individual Cases or take Mass Actions as needed. It is not intended to replace or modify any internal business processes.

Navigating to the Case Queue List

  1. Use the arrow to bring up the dropdown for the Service Console Navigation Tab and select Cases.

  2. This brings up the Cases Tab where you will be seeing Cases for your default Queue per your account settings.
  3. If needed, use the dropdown at the top of the screen to select a Queue List to view. 
    • Check with your internal business practices to determine which selections available to you will bring up the Cases you should be working on.
    • The List Views available in the dropdown may be for different Statuses of the same Queue (i.e. New versus Open) so pay attention to any naming conventions.
    • Cases assigned directly to you as a User will be in My Cases.
