Beginner Pega Platform '23 Case Management Constellation English


Throughout the Case Life Cycle of the GoGoRoad application, members of the CSR team must stay in contact with one another. One of the most efficient ways for users to stay in contact is through two Pega Platform™ collaboration tools: Pulse and Tags. As a CSR, you want to be able to add a tag to Assistance Request Cases that you need help with and to track tagged Cases. 

Note: The framework of this challenge uses the Constellation architecture of Pega Platform™. To practice this challenge on the Traditional UI architecture, see the Collaborating in Spaces and Pulse version 8.8 challenge.

The following table provides the credentials you need to complete the challenge:

Note: Your practice environment may support the completion of multiple challenges. As a result, the configuration shown in the challenge walkthrough may not match your environment exactly.
