New in 7.1: Delegation by type

One of the nice features in 7.0 is the ability to delegate your responsibility to someone else.  All delegation chains are recorded for a legitimate audit trail, are checked to avoid circular delegation (the buck passes all the way back to you), and set for a time limit (just for next week while I am on vacation!).

In 7.1, you can now do delegation types. This is an extension of the work item types and can be extended by your development team to handle any delegation types you want to do.  Out of the box, delegations can now be split along task types.

Examples are best. In 7.0, you could pick Jerome to handle all of your delegations next week while you are on vacation.  In a 7.1 deployment, you could have Jerome handle your approvals, Kathy your account attestations, and Chick, your role request approvals.

The out of the box tasks include:
  1. Approvals
  2. Organization Approvals
  3. Resource Approvals
  4. Role Approvals
  5. Attestation
  6. Review
  7. Access Review Remediation
Delegations can be canceled at any time and can be canceled by type.

There is now a new configuration type "workItemTypes" which is an extension of either the above tasks (Attestations, Review, etc.) or of the base workItem. This allows your project complex flexibility to add its own custom tasks and permit their delegation separate from the other types of delegations.

Delegations in 6.0 will be upgraded to the new configurations on an upgrade to 7.1.
