Improve operational efficiency by enabling completion of key tasks at any time via mobile access.
Incident Management Scenario
Overview
A mobile Incident analyst logs into SmartCloud Control Desk and views a list of current
incidents that are assigned to him. He sees several incidents and notices that he will be unable
to work on one of them for several days. This will cause an unacceptable resolution time, so he
reassigns the ticket to the dispatch queue for reassignment to another analyst. A mobile user
managing the dispatch queue logs in, sees the reassigned ticket in the queue and is able to
reassign this ticket to a new analyst.
Procedure:
1) Log into Control Desk as user 'incidentuser1' with password 'maxadmin'.

7) By default the mobile start center will be presented.
8) Pick the incident that was just reassigned and it will open with the mobile app.
9) Reassign this ticket to 'incidentuser1' to complete the scenario and also to reset the scenario for
the next presentation.
