Notifying delegates

If required, a delegator can receive notifications if the deputy or recipient of the single delegation has made a request in the IT Shop. Notification is sent once an employee has been determined as an approver due to delegation and has made an approval decision for the request.

To send notification when the employee who was delegated an approval approves or denies the request

  • In the Designer, set the QER | ITShop | Delegation | MailTemplateIdents | InformDelegatorAboutDecisionITShop configuration parameter.

    By default, a notification is sent with the Delegation - inform delegator about decided request mail template.

TIP: To use custom mail templates for emails of this type, change the value of the configuration parameter.

Delegations are taken into account in the following default approval procedures.

Bulk delegation

You have the option to delegate all your responsibilities to one person in the Web Portal. If you have a lot of responsibilities, it is possible that not all the delegations are carried out. A delegator can send a notification to themselves if an error occurs.
