Defer an Item
Transition an Item into the Deferred status if you're going to decide whether or not to implement it at a later date.
If an Item has been evaluated by your leadership but no decision has been made as to whether or not to implement it yet, you can defer it. This allows you to return to it at a later date and reevaluate it.
Who can defer an Item?
- Anyone with the "Edit" permission for Items in this Location(s).
- For Items using the Simple or Standard Team Type, anyone with the "Assign" permission for Items in this Location(s).
- Anyone with the appropriate Team Roles:
- For Items using the Standard Team Type, the Assigner.
- For Items using the Simple Team Type, anyone on the Team except for Followers.
- For Items using the Author-Only Team Type, anyone on the Team except for Followers.
- For Items using the Advanced Team Type, anyone on the Team except for Participants and Followers.
For more information on Team Roles (like Authors, Facilitators, Participants, and more!) check out this article.
