08/23/22- Hello everyone, I had the opportunity to create a presentation using workflow diagram symbols describing a workflow and how technology and automation can improve my workflow.

 How automation and technology can improve the workflow:

  • Asking pre-screening questions with automated ranking (i.e. do you live in Atlanta?)
  • Pulling your resume using technology to flag words from the job description
  • Sourcing CVs and being able to build a shortlist faster
  • One-way video interviews so recruiters only have to write questions once.
  • Ranking candidates based on their experience, skills, and location to streamline the hiring process
  • Remove some sources of bias from the hiring process, which has been shown to improve diversity in hiring.
  • Technology and automation enhance workflow by reducing manual tasks, boosting efficiency, enabling better communication, providing data-driven insights, ensuring accuracy, facilitating scalability, and promoting innovation.

08/29/23 Incident Management Application

Today I impersonated a user to help create an incident using classic lists and forms. 

-I clicked the User menu and ensured I logged in as the System Administrator. I impersonated April's instance, I automatically landed on her Workspace landing space, I navigated to the All Menu, on the filter navigator, I typed Incident from there selected Incident >Create New. I received a call from Dennis regarding an issue with his Conference Mobile App for Staff.  I completed the the form for Fred, stating what the issue was in the short description area, and his description for the message, I also noted how this was being completed in the channel field: Phone, the type it it was in reference for in the Service area, the service offering, configuration item because this issue is urgent, I marked it as High 1 in Urgency, Impact 1 high as well. After I saved the incident, I verified it auto-populated in the Assignment group area with Conference Event App Support. I noted the work notes and the additional comments as well and I made sure to click update.  I clicked the History menu to locate and open the Incident report, making sure the notes tab showed the activity with comments. I navigated back to All> Incident> Open and searched for the incident number, and found it was there in the feed. Navigated to All> Service Desk and located and hovered over to My group Work module and made sure I marked this as a favorite for easy accessibility. 

I navigated to her workspace, to locate the incident that Dennis called in for, this is a special handling incident because of the priority. I assigned the case to me (April) and I attached an article that could possibly help Dennis and let him know, that if this article wasn't helpful we could try a second step.  I navigated to the Resolution section and added the relevant code (Workaround provided), and a resolution note, and clicked Resolve to save. From there I ended April's impersonation. 

What I learned from this was how to process Incidents, Changes, Problems, and Request. and how to improve a workflow. Also, the Employee Center Portal is a one-stop shop for internal employee needs.
