Apologies if this has already been discussed. I'm hoping I can get some advice on using workflow statuses to change assignees.
Example: email creation.
This is our current blueprint:
So the alternative would obviously be just having one task that moves through a workflow, something like this:
The draw of this is moving to simplified workspace with less tasks. I just can't get past these issues:
- Scheduling - Each person in the workflow has a certain amount of time to complete each tasks. For example, we usually allot at least 2-3 days for copywriting and 2 days for building and testing. The scheduled date applies to the entire task, not each step of the workflow. Could the new automation features help with this? For example, if the copywriter doesn't change the status for 2 days, he'll be notified.
- Transparency - If the designer isn't added as the assignee until 2-3 days into the workflow, he's likely to be surprised. How is he able to prioritize effectively? For example, I like to look at my tasks and say, "I have to do this task in 2 days," so I can plan out my week.
Does anyone have a similar use case using workflows and dynamic assignees? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
