How do you assign an input to a user?

Make sure you know who is doing what

The ability to manage Input requires Ownership of the Input.

An Owner is responsible for the Input progressing through the stages. While an Input item may be Assigned To other users to perform actions, the Owner has ownership of the Input item through the whole process and is accountable for progress to closure.

Input Owners have complete control over the Input, including ability to edit title and description, update Topic, Release, Stage, Assignment, Ownership and deletion.

Note that if there is only one Owner in a crowd all incoming Input is automatically assigned to that Owner.

  1. Click on the Inputs tab on the top right of the screen.
  2. Click on an Input that you have ownership of.
  3. Use the dropdown boxes to update the Input items: Topic, Release, Lifecycle, Stage, Ownership and who it is assigned to.
