How do I close a case by creating a rule?

Good evening all!

How do I close a case without having to create a new form, but by answering
a question on my current form? On the CommCare help page “Automatically
Close Cases”, the instructions say that this is possible by going into Data
-> Edit Data -> Add automatically close case rule. When I go to Data
though, the only tab under Edit Data is Reassign Cases. I don’t seem to
have the option of closing cases. I would appreciate any help on this!

Thanks!
Erika

Hi Erika,

The feature to automatically close cases requires a subscription to the Pro
plan or higher.

However, it also sounds like you might not need that feature - if you’re
just looking to close the case by answering a question on your current
form, you can configure that on the Case Management tab for your form. See
here
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Case+Configuration#CaseConfiguration-ClosingaCase
for
details.

Thanks,
Giovanni

Hi Giovanni,

Thanks so much! That is all I needed! I didn’t realise that an “only if the
answer” tab would open u when I checked that box.

Have a good day!

The post were dated on Apr 2017. May I know if the feature has removed? When I check the “Close this case when the form is complete”, nothing appear for me to set.
