Customer AS Viljoen Boerdery sends an email to ‘Marius’ (Customer account ‘Owner’) to look into an invoicing problem. ‘Marius’ needs ‘Comien’ (the internal CRM user who needs to physically investigate the issue) to look into the query, but at the same time he still needs to retain ownership of it (the Case).
The best way to ensure that ownership is retained is to:
1. Create the Case
2. Save the Case and attach and necessary documentation:
3. Create a task for ‘Comien’ directly from the Case record: Click on the Add toolbar and select Task:
