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.

You can create customized buttons to trigger complex business rules

North52's Decision Suite has functionality that we call Quick Buttons that allows you to place buttons on a form which when clicked will trigger a North52 Formula.  The business rule logic could be as simple as triggering a workflow or a much more complex process which involves many actions - the full power of the North52 business rules engine for Dynamics 365 can be used. 

The button's themselves can be subject to business rules, that show/hide, activate/deactivate or and/or change labels. This is configured using Decision Tables allowing complex decision logic to drive the button options that are presented to users.
