Workflow Main Components

The workflow is a piece of work that can move between stages, the workflow has the following main components:

– Stages

– Tasks

– Notifications

1. Stages

Each workflow has an initial stage (Starting Stage) that can be assigned to one or more people who has the responsibility to choose the next stage, and a (Final Stage) without outcomes or transition to other stages. 

When designing the workflow, it is important to know the stage category: 

Transition stage:  is used as a transition for other stages where the assignee cannot decide the ticket resolution from this stage (e.g., Re-assign, Escalate, Postpone, …etc.).

Fixing stage: is knowing the resolution and finalizing by closing the ticket. It then forms the time for solving the ticket.

Ticket Actual Time= Sum of all stages with category “Fixing stage.” 

2. Tasks

Regardless the stage, there should be an assignee (user or group) at any time of the request lifecycle who is responsible for moving the current stage to the next stage. 

Upon assignment, the system creates an internal task for assignee with predefined SLA

3) Notifications

You can create customer email notifications to be sent to the assignee once getting the stage assigned.
