As a Developer for Display workflows, you will need to pick up tasks, update and finish them and send work for approval using work items. You'll also to need to update your timesheets.
Before your involvement in the workflow, the Account Manager creates work items and tasks corresponding to work to be completed, the Resource Manager then assigns this work to you.
Use the workflow diagram to get a bigger picture of the process.
Work item statuses you will use in Display
Status Function In Production Use this when you have picked up a work item allocated to you and are producing the content offline. On Hold Use this when you have reviewed a work item but have questions and are not ready to start production yet. Sent for QA Approval Set this, after uploading your file, to send work for QA approval.
First of all, once you've logged in, tasks will be assigned to you and you will see them on your homepage, accessible through the house icon in the nav bar at the top of the page.
Clicking the task you want to work on will open it and take you to the Tasks tab of the work item which contains the task. The organisational structure is as such: Jobs contain Work Items, Work Items contain Tasks.
At the top there is a set of tabs, of which you will be using: Details, Brief, Revisions, Files, Tasks and Documents.
Firstly, use the Brief tab to review the essential details and the Documents tab to pick up any attached documents.
Once reviewed, open the task again and click the Start Task button in the bottom right and in the corresponding screen, change the status of the work item to In Production and confirm using the Start Task button. There is an option to change the status to On Hold from the Brief tab if you have questions for your team lead.
Linking to Content and Finishing Tasks
Once you've finished your work offline, you must provide links to the display ads in order to send for QA approval.
The process is the same for both workflows, so follow these steps:
- Click the Files tab
- Click Add files
- Click Create empty file. This acts as a place holder for links.
- Enter the links in the Links field
- Click Save
- Click the Tasks tab and find the Task you have completed.
- Click Finish Task and do the following:
- Update the work item status to Sent for QA Approval
- Enter your time spent in hours and minutes.
- Set the activity type to Display Dev
- Add any notes
- Click Finish Task
- Click Save
Setting the work item status as Sent for QA Approval completes your work, however if your work is sent back with rework required, you must repeat the process above.
Find the details of the rework in the Revisions tab of the work item.
