Why my Enhanced SLA not triggering – CRM 2015

I was exploring ‘Enhanced SLA’ feature in CRM 2015. I created my first basic enhanced SLA with below steps

  • Created a new SLA

Enhanced SLA

  • Added a new ‘SLA Item’ with no ‘Applicable When’ criteria (i.e., SLA should kick in for all Case’s if no criteria given) and ‘Success Criteria’ as Case Status ‘Resolved’
Applicable And Success Criteria

Applicable And Success Criteria

  • Set the Failure Duration as ‘5 minutes’ and Warn Duration as ‘1 Minute’

  • Activated the SLA

Enhanced SLA – Activation

  • Created a new Case.
  • But no Timer or ‘SLA KPI’ records logged when I expanded ‘Enhanced SLA Details’ section.

Reason

  • There was no ‘Entitlement’ configured
  • So what is an Entitlement?  ‘Entitlements’ are correlated to Customers (i.e., Either Account or Contact) in the system and define what kind of support your customers are eligible for.

Enhanced SLA – Entitlements

Note : If you don’t want to configure ‘Entitlement’ make to set SLA as Default which will be applicable for all Customers.

Fix

  • Since I am just exploring SLA’s, I did not create an ‘Entitlement’ instead I made my SLA as ‘Default’
Enhanced SLA - Set Default

Enhanced SLA – Set Default

  • Created a new Case and this time got the OOB Timer and SLA KPI record in sub-grid.
Enhanced SLA - Triggered

Enhanced SLA – Triggered

Additional Details

  • How to Pause a SLA
    • Using ‘Enhanced SLA’ you can put SLA on ‘HOLD’ by choosing Case ‘Status’ with pre-configured ‘Case Status’ (Refer screen how to configure Status)
    Enhanced SLA - Set 'HOLD' status

    Enhanced SLA – Set ‘HOLD’ status

    • Go to the ‘Case’ and choose Status = ‘On hold’ and Save
    Case - Choose 'On Hold' status

    Case – Choose ‘On Hold’ status

    • See the Resolve in set to ‘Paused’
Enhanced SLA - Case 'On Hold'

Enhanced SLA – Case ‘On Hold’

    Hi, in my case I have set up exactly like this and the SLA Kpi is displayed in the table with the right time and date but the timer says only NotSet even when I pause it. I tried to google a bit what that means but I can’t find it anywhere. Do you have any idea what could that be?
