Configure the process flow for customer service

The process flow bar organizes tasks under various stages, which are used to easily lead you through the process of case resolution. The process flow bar also highlights the stages and tasks that you’ve already completed. You can configure the bar to add or update the stages, steps, and fields to suit your business needs.
