Scenario Overview

In this scenario we need to capture the description field that is entered when a Case is Resolved & move it on to a field on the Case entity. This allows us to perform much easier Advanced Finds on the Case to find out how the case was resolved.

The Formula Manager solution works like this,

  • A formula is created which executes on the Create of a Case Resolution record

  • It uses the incidentid field to lookup what Case needs to be updated 

  • It updates the Case with the description on the Case Resolution entity
