Table of contents
This is the Octopus Boards that allows you to create a Board in just a few steps and add the wanted Incidents / SRs.
Other features will follow including the possibility of adding a card that is not linked to a request.
Normally when a card is added to the board, it is linked to an incident or a service request. But in some cases, we want to follow an element that is not related to a request.
This is possible using an open card.
Add an Open Card
You start to add the card the same way, but then you use the arrow at the end of the Add an existing incident/SR field to choose the Add open card option.
Then you add a subject and you can choose to complete the information with a description.
In the board you will recognize the open card by its subject. If you click the card, you will have access to other elements:
- You can add an assignee
- No notification will be sent to the assignee
- Modify the description or the subject
- Add activities
- You can modify the date of an activity
- You can attach a file
- Communication by email is
- The efforts will be visible in the timesheet

Confirmation will be requested upon deletion.
