Creating work targets

You can create multiple work target items in each of your service portfolios. When a ticket is created with a certain priority and other specific values that matches a business rule defined in your environment, the rule fires and searches for a matching Service Level Target (SLT).

Once a match is found, a work target record is created and linked to the ticket. Calculated values from the SLT, such as deadlines for response and resolution, are included in the work target.

Built-in fields such as Created By are not used for matching.
