A Case is created when a vehicle comes to a bodyshop to obtain an estimate for damage. It is a one time event for the damage that exists on the vehicle at the time of the estimate. If the vehicle returns at a later date for an estimate on more damage, a new Case is raised. A Case is similar to an estimate in the old Estimate Manager, but allows much more flexibility.
