Soon, community members and contractors with access to CommunityConnect will be able to:


Permit Workflows

Bulk assign workflow steps

Now you can quickly bulk assign several workflow steps at a time to one specific user. Even workflow steps that aren't open can be assigned. This will eliminate having to assign steps one by one or even wait until a step becomes active.

Bulk update workflow statuses

With the update, you now also have the ability to update the status of multiple permit workflow steps at the same time. This allows you to quickly close a number of active steps in a group without individually opening each status.

To help your users get to the right people to answer their questions the most efficiently, soon contractors and community members will start seeing the new Contact Building Department button in CommunityConnect.

From the button, users will be able to send an email to the proper contact. Depending on what page the user is on in CommunityCore, you may also see a link to the specific permit or project they are emailing about. We hope this will save you time gathering info about a contrator/applicant questions!
