About Delegated Assignment Delegated assignment provides people (positions) other than the assignment administrator the ability to create and manage assignment rules. The top assignment administrator (AA) position can delegate rule administration to other positions and partners to route leads, activities, accounts, and other objects to employees or positions. These delegates are known as DAs. DAs can, in turn, delegate assignment rule administration to other DAs. This hierarchical assignment rule inheritance feature may be suitable for sales organizations and organizations that work closely with partners. Delegated assignment allows AAs the ability to enforce core business logic using rule inheritance, while allowing delegated administrators (DAs) the ability to further refine that logic and specialize their assignment rules for their unique circumstances.

A Assignment Rule Administration for Delegated Assignment About Delegated Assignment 174 However, DAs can only inherit rules from their parent rule group. When inheriting a rule, DAs are allowed to choose only from rules in the parent rule group in which the owner of their rule group is currently a candidate (employee or position). The logic specified on a rule is enforced on all inherited rules by making sure that the rule contains nonremovable and noneditable copies of all criteria from the parent rule. DAs can further refine the rule’s logic, by adding new criteria to inherited rules by either creating new criteria or by adding and modifying criteria templates. DAs can also delete any rule they choose to inherit from the parent rule group. Candidates (employees and positions) of rules are not inherited, so users can choose anyone their organization visibility allows as a candidate. Workload criteria, organization workload criteria, and organizations are not inherited. If you plan to use delegated assignment, the top AA position must first prepare the assignment rules for inheritance. After a rule is inherited and changes are made to the original rule (such as adding criteria to, expiring, or deleting the rule), those changes are propagated down the hierarchy to all rules that were inherited from it. This topic contains the following subtopics: “Scenario for Delegated Assignment” on page 174 “Sample Delegated Assignment Process Flowchart” on page 176 “About Setting Up Assignment Rules for Delegation” on page 177 Scenario for Delegated Assignment This topic is part of “About Delegated Assignment” on page 173 . This scenario gives one example of how you can dynamically assign candidates. You may use this feature differently, depending on your business model. For this scenario, candidates are assigned to an activity based on the information provided in Table 45 . The numbers at the top of the table correspond to the numbered text following the table.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
