You can control when cases are created by configuring one or more creation methods in a case type. By default, users can manually create top-level cases only.Use the following techniques to configure the creation methods for each case type in your application:
- Enabling automatic creation of child cases
Enable automatic creation of a child case type each time that a parent case is created.
- Enabling automatic conditional creation of child cases
Enable conditional creation of a child case after creating a parent case when the case data meets the conditions that you define. For example, to save time and automate work, you can configure an application that processes purchase orders to create a shipment case when the status of its parent case, that tracks the order and payment, changes to Billing-Approved.
- Enabling creation by email of top-level cases
Associate an email account with a top-level case type to provide a way for users to create cases remotely.
