Find what's assigned to you in a queue

Quickly see the items assigned to you or that are available to work on by using queues in Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Think of them as to-do lists that help you organize your work.


Important

For Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online organizations, some features like picking or releasing items are available if you've applied product updates for CRM Online Spring ‘14, or if you've installed the CRM Online 2015 Update. For on-premises CRM organizations, these features are available if you've installed CRM 2013 Service Pack 1 (on-premises), or if you've updated to CRM 2015.

    Important

    If you're using CRM 2013 SP1 or CRM Online Spring ‘14, you'll only see business queues in the inline lookup by default. Business queues only include user-created queues and leave out all user and team queues. When you choose Look Up More Records in the inline lookup, by default, you'll see the business queues because Business Queues is the default view. You can't set a different view as the default view. To choose a different queue than a business queue, in the Look Up Records dialog box, in the Look in list, choose the All Queues view.


    -OR-

    To assign the activity or case to another user or team to work on, choose User/Team, and select the user or team. When you assign the activity or case to someone else to work on, the Worked By field is set to that user or team. You also have the option to remove the item from the queue.

Remove an activity or case from a queue

  1. In the View list, select one of the views that show the items you want to remove.

  2. Select the activity or case, and on the command bar, choose Remove.
