Why am I being prompted to assign Improvements?
KaiNexus asks you to assign Improvements to people if:
- You have the appropriate permissions and are above the person who submitted an Improvement in your organization’s hierarchy, or
- You’re the leader or facilitator of a Project to which someone has submitted an Improvement.
How do I know if I need to assign an Improvement?
- The Improvement will be listed in the Notifications Screen, with a message that you need to assign it, and
- The Improvement will be in the "New" status, and there will be an alert - - with a message telling you that it is new.
How do I assign an Improvement to someone?
Open the Improvement you want to assign, then:
- Click the status indicator.
- Click in the resulting drop-down menu.
In the resulting window, you can configure the:
- Responsible person
- If you’re a leader in KaiNexus, you can assign Improvements to various users (typically those below you in the network) depending on your role.
- If the Improvement was submitted as part of a Project, you may assign it to any of the Project’s participant(s).
- You may assign Improvements to yourself.
- Due date
- The date by which the Resolution should be submitted.
- You have the option of leaving a comment for the responsible person if you want to give them more detailed instructions.
- While you will be the default Assigned By, you can select a new user to fill this role.
- Checking the box next to "Require Assigner to approve Resolution" will require that any Resolution submitted by the responsible person will need to be approved by the Assigner before the Improvement’s status is changed to complete.
If you do not see this checkbox, your organization has decided whether the Assigner's approval is required for you.
- Add Collaborators to provide the Responsible person with assistance and/or Followers if you know of certain people who will want to stay informed about the Improvement’s progress.
