About Dimensions CM Requests

The Dimensions for Visual Studio Plug-in simplifies the process of administering requests. You can perform the most frequent tasks from within Visual Studio, such as actioning a request through its lifecycle or delegating the request to a developer. Normal Dimensions CM rules only allow valid lifecycle transitions that are valid. After the next state has been selected, you can choose to delegate the request to a particular role. Requests that you action are placed in the inbox of the relevant users.

Where a role has multiple potential users, you can identify the specific users that will receive the request. This allows team leaders to monitor and reassign work as necessary to maintain and improve team productivity.
