Assigning system roles directly to workdesks

System roles can be assigned directly or indirectly to a contact. Indirect assignment is carried out by allocating the workdesk and system roles in company structures, like departments, cost centers, locations, or business roles.

To react quickly to special requests, you can assign system roles directly to workdesks. The workdesks obtain all company resources assigned to the system role.

NOTE: The company resources are not inherited if the system role is disabled or if the share date is still in the future.
