Configuring delayed service-level processing
Provide solutions in scenarios when users need to wait before processing an assignment by delaying service-level agreements (SLAs). As a result, you deliver a flexible application and adjust processing to the unique business requirements of your customers.For example, consider a scenario in which an employee of a trading company has a deadline of two days to review and approve a return of faulty goods from a customer. The deadline count starts when the employee receives the faulty goods, which happens daily at 3:00 PM, even if the review assignment in a complaint case is ready earlier. In a different scenario, an employee needs to wait for two hours before processing a purchase order, because a customer can cancel finalization of the order for two hours after the purchase.
