How to User Fields can be used to create automatic assignment rules at particular Steps in a Workflow
What is a User Field?
A User Field is a select list of users from your Risk Cloud environment. A User Field can be defined in Build based on individual users or it can be based on a Role.
On a form, a User Field acts as a searchable list from which a user can be selected.
Creating Assignee Rules
Workflow Paths can be configured to automatically assign Records when the Record moves from one Step to another.
To create a path assignee rule, click pencil icon on the path.
In the modal, there are three options on what default assignee to apply to the path
No default assignee: No user is assigned on record submission by default
A user specified in a user field: Select a user field in the current or any directly-linked workflow. The user specified in this field will be assigned on record submission by default
The current assignee and continue to the next step: The user that submits the record will automatically be assigned to the same record on record submission by default. This user will also be taken to this next step on submission.
Once selected, click the Save button to close the modal.
How does it look when interacting with work?
Upon clicking 'Submit' on a Record, the Submission Options confirmation box will auto-fill with the user selected in the mapped User Field for the path (in this case the path to the 'Owner' Step).
