This guide explains how to manage cases across the company

Updated over a week ago

Managing cases effectively is crucial for maintaining organizational efficiency and addressing employee needs promptly.

As an administrator, you have several key functions:

  • Access Cases tab: Monitor and track all cases at the company level.

  • Assign cases: Delegate cases to specific employees (Case Managers) for resolution.

  • Assign categories: Assign a default assignee for a category.

  • Change Case status and category: Update the status and category of cases to reflect their progress and category.

  • Utilize filters: Utilize category-based filters to effectively monitor cases and track their status.

  • Manage permissions: Configure permissions in the Roles and Permissions settings to grant case management access to other employees, such as managers.

  • Create a new case from Case tab: Create case either for yourself or on behalf of employees, to address complaints or requests received outside the PeopleForce system.

Let’s dive deeper into the details to understand how these features can streamline your attendance tracking and management processes.

Centralized cases management

All cases managed at the company level are conveniently displayed in one centralized location on the Cases page. This makes it easier than ever to monitor and manage all ongoing cases and requests within your organization.

Filter the data

Utilize category-based filters to effectively monitor cases and track their status. This functionality enables quick and efficient retrieval of relevant data based on your specified criteria.

Assign the default assignee for a specific case category

When creating a new category, you have the option to choose default assignees for different case categories. This allows cases to be automatically routed to the appropriate team members.

For instance, in the Salary category, you can assign your accountant as the default assignee. Whenever a case is filed under this category, it will automatically be assigned to the accountant, who will receive a notification either via email or in the notification bar. From there, they can take the necessary action or reassign the case to another employee.

Assign cases

If a specific category doesn't have a pre-assigned responsible person for cases, the HR manager or the person in charge of case management will receive the newly created case and assign it to an employee who can handle it. This assignment is done in the Case details widget under the Assigned to field.

Change Case status and category

Administrator can update the status ( In progress, on hold or closed ) and category of cases to reflect their progress and category.

Manage permissions

In the Roles & permissions section, under Edit role/New role → Company → Desk, you can give the permission to manage cases on the company level.

Creating a case

Administrators can create cases on behalf of employees if a complaint or request is received outside the PeopleForce system. This process involves the following steps:

1. In the Cases tab, click Create a case.

2. Specify the employee associated with the case by filling in the Associated to field.

3. Select the most appropriate category that reflects the nature of the case and provide a brief and clear title and detailed description of the case.

4. Later on, assign a responsible person for resolving the case by specifying them in the Case details widget.


After creating the case, the employee assigned to the case will receive notifications via email and within the system.
