Hello Everyone,


I would like to know if there's anyway for cases to be automatically opened and details to be queried from a client's e-mail that's requesting a case to be open?

is there anything like a script or an add on within outlook that does this ?

Thanks

There is a component Outlook to CRM that probably can do that.
Also Microsoft has an add on for Outlook

On any other case you probably need to use workflows, if cases are recurring.

You can either use workflow or a third-party add-in to automatically create cases.

With a workflow, you need to write a workflow that creates a case when an e-mail is received in CRM. However, you need some logic to only create cases for appropriate e-mails. That might be something like only e-mails sent to a support@ address or e-mails that contain particular words in the subject.

Although the workflow method will work it is quite hard to match the incoming e-mail address to the appropriate customer on the case. You may find it quicker to go for a third-party add-on solution such as http://www.c360.com/EmailToCase.aspx.

I have followed the link that I posted carefully but still unable to get this to work, on another thread I have opened for this it seems that I need to customize two e-mail addresses one for receiving e-mails or requests for cases from clients and one to forward to our technical team.

I'll work on it and once i'm done i'll post a whole tutorial on how to do so.
thanks a lot for your help.
