Enabling users to transfer an assignment

Suggest edit Updated on November 5, 2021

By adding the pyTransferAssignment flow action to the assignment shape in your process, you enable end users to transfer assignments at run time, which can speed up case processing and support selection of the most competent worker to resolve a particular case.

The pyTransferAssignment flow action enables users to manually reassign an assignment to another operator, a reporting manager, work queue, work group, or work group manager. After a transfer, the assignment appears in the worklist of the new assignee.
