Flagging a job

Set different types of flag to visually identify a job

Every job can be “flagged” to assist in the management of a job queue. Flagging a job is simply a way of marking it with a “flag” icon that will appear in the both the Explorer and in the job screen. The flag is simply a visual indentification mechanism that can serve a useful purpose for quick identification and/or workflow purposes.

Who can flag a job?

Flagging a job is only available to staff members where one or more of the following apply:

  • The job is assigned to them directly
  • The job is assigned to the “unassigned” queue of a skillgroup that they belong to AND the staff member has “Full” access job permissions for that skillgroup. Job permissions are set via Job Security Roles
  • The Staff member belongs to an Application Security Role that has the “Allow full access to all Jobs” permission turned on.

Who can see the flag?

Only staff members can see the flag. Clients (end-users) cannot see any flags, nor have the ability to flag a job.
