CRM 4.0 - workflow to assign an email to a queue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, any help appreciated.

    What I want is:

    1. 3rd party comapny emails designated mailbox, which fires workflow to create a case(DONE)

    2. Case is assigned if the email subject matches a predefined list, and assigns the case to a queue

    3. notification email fires to alert the case owner


    Note that the Case owner may not be an individual, it may be a group mailbox etc, which is why I am trying to use the queue functionality.

    The problem with this is that although the case appears in the correct queue, it does not update the case owner field, so I cannot fire a notification email.


    Any help appreciated, I think I may be taking the wrong approach completely!

  • Perhaps you could create a contact record and email the contact when a case is assigned to a queue, and have a user's email address or a distribution group's email address in the contact record.
