What are Case Views

Case Views are different saved filters to quickly pull up a subset of the Cases within the Boomtown Platform. The Case Views that have already been saved can be found in the Views picklist on the Cases activity. 

Selecting a Case View from this picklist will change the Cases viewable on the activity, as well as, the metrics Insights section on the right side of the Cases activity. By default, you'll always see the All Cases View when navigating to the Cases activity which allows you to see all Cases within the Boomtown Platform for your Organization. To choose a new View click the Views picklist and choose the Case View you would like to filter your Cases to (Example: All Unassigned Cases). 

Saved Case Views

By default, each user will have access to the following set of Case Views - 

  • All Cases - This View shows all Cases in the Boomtown Platform
  • Open Cases - This View shows all Cases that are not Resolved yet
  • All Unassigned Cases - This View shows all Cases in the Boomtown Platform that aren't currently assigned to a User
  • My Team's Unassigned Cases - This View shows all Cases that aren't currently assigned to a User for the teams you are on

When you select a Case View from the list, you'll be able to view the Filters associated with that Case View under the Filters section on the right side of the Cases activity. To show or hide the Filters section, you can click the Filters button in the top right.
