Set up GeniusQueue for Salesforce (MT4)

MindTouch allows you create a GeniusQueue using a simple Case Object. You can also create a queue by adding a checkbox to the case. These will allow you to capture user created negative feedback. This tutorial will show you how to set up a GeniusQueue within Salesforce.

Set up a Knowledge Queue in the Case Object

Follow this path in Customize > Cases > Fields > Case Origins

Under 'Case Origin Picklist Values' click the 'New' button. Type in Knowledge Queue or KQ and click Save. The new picklist value will show up in your list of values.

Configure Email-to-Case

Follow this path in Salesforce: Customize>Cases>Fields>Email-to-Case

Add a routing email address.

Under 'Routing Addreses' click the 'New' button and have Email-to-Case selected.

Select a Routing Name, desigate the Email Address (using the same address you configured in the MindTouch Control Panel), and set the Case Origin to 'Knowledge Queue'.  Salesforce will create a longer Email Services Address.

Make sure to verify your email address.

Copy the Email Services Address and use it to set up a forwarding address in your email client.
