XTM Cloud v 13.1

User Groups

XTM allows you to create the following types of user groups:

  1. First-come first-served

  2. Allocation order

  3. Chat

First-come first-served group

This group can be assigned to the tasks in the workflow.

  1. For first-come first-served groups all group members will receive an email advising them that a new task is available.

  2. A user can then accept the task which will be recorded by XTM

Other group members will be informed that the task is no longer available.

Allocation order groups

This group can be assigned to the tasks in the workflow.

  1. An email is initially sent to the first member of the group.

  2. The linguist can accept or reject the task.

If it is rejected the next person in the group will receive the email and so on until a linguist accepts the task.

You cannot assign a Chat user group to tasks in the workflow
