Automate Resource Assignments for Case Owners upon Case creation and transfer

Use Case

You’re the System Administrator at Aurora Apps, and your company has been using Resource Hero to staff, allocate, and track time for Customer Support Reps on Cases. When a Support Rep creates a new case, they then create a new Resource Assignment as the original case owner. When the initial case owner completes their tasks on the case, they reassign the case to the next Customer Support Rep. who also creates a new Resource Assignment. Depending on the details of the individual case, the 2nd rep may return the case to the original owner, or they may close the case.

One of your Customer Support Managers, Michael Monsoor, was tasked with reducing the time necessary to close each customer support case successfully. Michael notes that creating assignments manually is a simple process, but comes to you for advice on how he can streamline the creation of Resource Assignments even further to reduce the overall time it takes to close the case. 


The Customer Support Reps have been manually creating Resource Assignments on Cases. While this has worked well, management would like to reduce the time to process cases successfully. When a case is created or transferred to another rep, management would like the Resource Assignment to be made based on the new case owner. Management would also like to ensure no duplicate Assignments when cases return to the original case owner.
