From the main portal page the Assigned to Me section on the right hand side is a collection of tasks and actions that are the responsibility of the logged in user.
The app names indicate the task's associated applications, and the red number indicates how many tasks are assigned in each app.
Users can click into these items and the records that are assigned will show in a list view of the app.
The user can then perform any actions that are necessary by clicking the record. Once the user completes the task associated with the record, the notification will be removed from 'Assigned to Me' section.
For the Administrator:
The settings for assignments and statuses can be configured within the Process Management of an app under the 'App Settings Tab'.
The 'Assignee List' section for each status contains the options for configuring who tasks are assigned to.
