Project Requests

New functionality has been built within Saltmine to enable submitting a project request.

What is it?

Users are now able to create a project request template for their team members within Saltmine. Team members can approve or reject the project, and will receive a notification upon being added.

Previously, users request project reviews through google sheets and forms, which could be a time-consuming and manual process for all parties involved.

Now, with this project request functionality, users are able to seamlessly request project reviews within Saltmine and have visibility into the project status.

This will enable

  • Better experience for all users within Saltmine 
  • Provides visibility into the project management process 
  • Automates assigning and reviewing project work for customers
  • Provides additional visibility for key stakeholders: allows external users to view project details within Saltmine
