A case is a detailed description of a customer’s feedback, problem, or question. Your organization can use cases to track and solve your customers’ issues. You can enter cases manually in the Cases tab, or your administrator can set up Web-to-Case and Email-to-Case to gather customer feedback from your company’s website and customer emails. Your customers can also create and submit new cases on your Self-Service portal.


track sub-cases


work like any other queue


Rules are executed in order

if no order matches the default assignment is used


used for customer request page on your company website

or IT support request page on an intranet page


support email account or helpdesk/call center situation is ideal for this

incoming/outbound emails can be tracked and attached to cases automatically


designed to escalate cases when they meet certain criteria

After X number of hours (and 30 minute increments)

Case escalations can email up to 5 non Salesforce users

Customize –> Cases –> Escalation Rules


auto response rules can determine which email response will be sent when a customer submits a case through email, website, or self service portal


Business hours allow you to assign cases to different time zones, and escalate cases according to time zone.

Note that Age Over and Age are two different entities. Age (as defined in reporting) does not take business hours into consideration, while the escalation rules (Age_over) do use business hours. Last time I checked into this you could get a Business Age field added from Salesforce by request only.

Approval Process (3%)

Steps for an approval

1. User submits record for approval, No way to automatically submit

2. Does this record match the criteria for any approval processes on this object, If yes –> Step 3 If no –> Reject

3. Perform initial submission actions, This will always include locking the record so that no further changes can be made until the approval process is finished

4. Record enters approval steps, Appropriate parties must approve/deny record

5. One of 3 approval process completions occurs. In addition to locking or unlocking the record, each of these completions can has its own set of additional workflow actions., Approval. Record is approved by all parties. The record is locked by default., Rejection. Record is rejected by any part. The record is unlocked by default., Recall. Record is recalled by submitter. The record is always unlocked.

Difference from workflow

Manual. Can only be invoked if record matches criteria.

Each step of the approval process requires interaction from a user (approve/reject).

Locks the record during the approval process.

Approval process audit history listed in separate related list on object

when you create an approval process using the wizard you’ll get an approval process with one approval step and one set of filter criteria with the default values


Each approval step is, 1) ordered in number of execution, 2) has its own filter criteria for entry, 3) designates an approver

1. Record is submitted for approval and meets initial criteria

2. If yes –> require approval. Designated approver approves/rejects and chooses the next approver if required. If the next approver is automatically selected through a hierarchical relationship, the current approver is used to determine the relationship (not the approval initiator).

3. Repeat step 2 until out of finished with approval steps


Filter Criteria

Next automated approver – used for hierarchical approvals

Administrator only or Administrator and Approver record modification

Email template – template that is sent to approver when an approval is required from that individual

Record Owner Concept

For each and every record there is one and only one record owner

Records can only be assigned to active licensed Salesforce users

When a user is marked inactive, they still own all records assigned to them, but cannot be assigned new records

the role of the record owner is what determines access to that record for the rest of the organization via Sharing Settings

In practice each user should be responsible for all records owned

Sharing Model

Organization-wide defaults control the level of access each user has to record they do not own.

Group-based sharing rules do not propagate using hierarchies

How Access Is Granted Via Role Heiarchy?, 1. Does the user’s profile have access to this object?, If no, deny access., 2. Is Grant Access Using Hierarchies enabled for this object?, If No –> Step 3, If Yes –> Is this user’s role higher in the hierarchy than the role of the record’s owner?, If Yes –> Provide full access, If No –> Grant permissions of any sharing rule for users lower in the hierarchy, 3. Grant permissions of any sharing rule specific to my role, 4. Grant permissions of default sharing settings, Grant the highest privileges of all of these steps combined.

Setup Organization Wide Sharing Defaults, Security Controls –> Sharing Settings


Users should be grouped into roles based upon their need for access to data

Creating a role for each title is not required

Roles are accessed throughout the application, and are particularly important for reporting

Manage Users –> Roles, Build a role heiarchy, Assign users to roles

Mas Transfer Record from one user to another

Data Management –> Mass Transfer Records

1. Select the type of record to transfer.

2. Enter the old user, new user, and set the filter criteria for records to transfer.

DO NOT trigger workflow rules.

Sharing Rules

Security Controls –> Sharing Settings

Objects that have?, Leads, Account, Contact, Opportunity, Case, Campaign, Custom Objects

Established between, Public Groups, Queues, Roles, Roles and Subordinates, Criteria Based (Sprint 11)

Share Records Manually, The sharing button will only appear when a record the Sharing Model for the object is either Private or Read Only., Records are shared individually

Public Groups, created by administrators and can be used by everyone, same basic functionality as private groups, using a sharing rule (org-wide or record sharing), specify contact synchronization, add multiple users to a Salesforce Content workspace

Account/Sales Teams

Sales Teams are designed to share information and establish roles between different roles within the organization.

The owner of the opportunity can create roles for each of the others and provide write access to the opportunity

Account Teams work on the same principal, however they can share all information on the account:


Used with, Documents, Email Templates, Reports, Dashboards

Folders act as containers for records

Creating a folder will let you specify the organization’s access to that folder and the records within
