Manage work inside your organization logically and efficiently by creating
work groups. A work group connects a manager and a group of reporting users to enable
relevant workflow management and improve communication.
For example, at run
time, when a user misses a deadline for a task, a reporting manager receives a notification.
Your application determines the manager by using a work group setting.
Note: When you create an application, the system creates a default work queue and work
group. Because of mutual dependencies, you need to provide a work queue when you
create a work group, and when you create a work group, you need to provide a work
queue. Use the default values, and then provide the actual values after you create
your work group and work queue.
