Defining purpose of a case type by creating specifications

Suggest edit Updated on November 26, 2021

Engage with your stakeholders and communicate goals that you want your case type to achieve by creating specifications. Specifications represent actions that users can perform by using your application so that all parties involved in the development process have a common understanding of the purpose of your application.

For example, for a Hiring a job candidate case type, you can create specifications that describe the following actions:
  • HR worker can collect personal information from the candidate
  • Job candidate can upload documents
  • Hiring manager can accept the candidate
Before you begin: Create specifications that you want to associate with your case type. Associating specifications with case types is suitable for advanced developers. To describe the purpose of your application in a low-code and more user-friendly way, create features.
  1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
  2. Expand the Process category, and then click Case Type.
  3. In the list of case type instances, open the case type that you want to edit.
  4. On the Specifications tab, click Click to associate specifications.
  5. In the Name column, press the Down arrow key, and then select a specification that you want to associate with the case type.
  6. Optional: To add more specifications, repeat steps 4 through 5.
  7. Click Save.
