IT Project Request

Introduction

The form allows for any user to submit new projects to an IT Department's Business Relationship Managers and IT Leadership team to determine if the project should be pursued. The associated workflow allows for IT Manager approval, Project Manager approval and assignment, the ability to notify users when a bug should be filed, and helps to streamline the process of finding new and worthwhile projects to work on.

Description

With the many things there are to do in the IT World, finding new projects that are worthwhile is difficult to do. To help, we've created a custom form and workflow to help you weed through the numerous project requests you receive. The form allows for any user to submit new projects to an IT Department's Business Relationship Managers and IT Leadership team to determine if the project should be pursued. The associated workflow allows for IT Manager approval, Project Manager approval and assignment, the ability to notify users when a bug should be filed, and helps to streamline the process of finding new and worthwhile projects.

Special Deployment Instructions:

Before you begin with the normal Deployment Instructions, please note the following:

This form will not work unless you first prepare to create custom .jsp files: First, locate the existing .jsp files. From your server, go to -- ssf -- WEB-INF -- jsp -- custom_jsp. After you're here, create a folder named custom. This is where you will house all of your own custom .jsp files. Move the .jsp files from the .zip file to this new folder. You must then completely delete the .jsp files from the .zip file. You are now ready to proceed with the normal deployment instructions. Feel free to take a look at the code for these simple .jsp files after you begin. I'll admit they might seem lengthy but you would be amazed how quickly it goes with cut and paste.
