Scenario Overview

In this business scenario the requirement is for Tasks to be assigned to a Queue called "Urgent" whenever the Subject line contains the word "Urgent".

N52 Formula Manager Solution

The Formula Manager solution works like this:

  • Whenever the a Task is created or the Subject updated the formula will check to see if the Subject contains the word 'urgent'
  • If it does contact 'Urgent' then the AddToQueue function is called and adds the Task to the specified Queue.

Note : A Queue called Urgent will need to have been created for this sample to work.
