    Assign incidents manually
    the assigned analyst is changed but the change is not saved, another is automatically placed


    Good Morning,
    By manually changing the assigned analyst in an incident, the analyst automatically changes and places another analyst, does not save the analyst change that is made.
    Is this something typical of the workspace? of the field? or is it necessary to make a rule to handle the analyst change when it is done manually?
    look at this video, it's an example
    Thanks for your suggestions.

      Hi Erlin.

      This is normal behavior. A change on the workspace is not automatically saved.
      You are however able to do this with a workspace rule.

      On a related side note I would like to mention that when deciding to use a save command in a workspace rule, make sure you have Send on save not enabled by default.

      Good Morning,
      thanks for your support. Excuse the screens in Spanish, I hope it's not a problem.
      I made the changes but it's still happening:
      Will I be missing a step?
      First time this happens to me.

      No problem I used google translate :-D

      Your settings are correct. If it's not working for you, make sure the profile you are testing with has the newly changed workspace for incidents specified. Also, close any open incident that may have been opened in the old workspace and re-open the incident.

      I'm going to add a video to see if I can explain myself better. The incident is assigned to Hannia, I change it to Albin (for example) and it is placed to Ingrid ............ and all this before saving. I can make the change to different analysts and enter that cycle ......

      Thanks for the video. This behavior is very common when having a conflicting workspace rule. Have only the rule active that I showed you and disable all other rules and save your workspace and test again. You will most likely see it working correctly then. After that identify the conflicting rule and make the adjustment. It is probably something with accounts that are excluded and included from a list through a rule.

      Thanks for your guidance.

      I think part of the problem is what you tell me, that some rule excludes other analysts.

      This could be affecting true?

      Thank you.

      Yes, that could definately affect as that rule checks if the assigned mailbox equals and then assigns it to a queue and assignes the incident to a specific person (Monica)

      When you perform a save in the workspace and match the condition in the business rule it will get changed by the business rule. I see your business rules only have 1 state, if you would to create an aditional state "In progress" and from your initial state transfer the incident to the in Progress state it will only run the Initial state when it's a new incident and not over again. You could disable your business rule and save the change and than test again to see if this rule is the one resonsible for the behavior you see.
