Twist Your Mind

  • Xyz pvt ltd is experiencing quality assurance issues with a product line. An administrator needs to use a standard object to track the extent of the problem. Which standard object should be used? 
  • In which situation is the Case Contact notified when a support representative adds a new case comment? 
  • A new approval process is being adapted by XYZ pvt ltd. After an opportunity has been approved, the contract is sent to the customer for signature as the final step in that process. How can the administrator implement this functionality?
