Onboarding cases have an initial urgency of 10. However, certain contractors need an expedited onboarding process because they are hired to work on short-term projects or projects with a tight deadline, or because of unforeseen circumstances. To provide the option to prioritize certain onboarding cases, add a local action that references the UrgencyUpdate flow action to the Select Seating Location assignment. 

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