Using rules to assign roles or activities to users

An assignment model is a method used to assign roles or activities to users automatically in a variety of situations, including campaigns and activity plans.

The Assignment Models page is divided into three main areas:

  • The Assignment Models list on the left, which displays a list of all the active assignment models.
  • The Detail area at the top right, which shows the details of the selected assignment model.
  • The Valid Roles list at the bottom right, which displays the coverage roles that can be used by the selected assignment model.

Adding assignment models

NexJ CRM comes with three assignment models: Opportunity Team, Coverage, and Campaign User. You will not normally need to add new assignment models, but can if required.

To add an assignment model:

  1. Navigate to the Assignment Models page.
  2. Click the Add button 
    The Add Assignment Model dialog opens.
  3. In the Detail area, enter the desired values into the Name and Description fields.

These rule sets are configured in the Rules Editor page. NexJ Admin Console comes with three rule sets for assignment models: CampaignParticipantOwnerAssignmentCoverageAssignment, and OpportunityCoverageAssignment.
