The standard life cycle for User Requests tickets in iTop does not allow to assign a ticket to a Team without assigning it to a specific Person inside this Team. By creating a new state dispatched, this extension allows to dispatch a User Request ticket to a Team, without assigning it to particular Person. From the dispatched state the User Request can then be assigned to a Person.
Dispatch a User Request to a Team before assigning it to a Person.
The standard User Request life-cycle is the following:
Once the extension has been installed, the User Request life-cycle becomes as follows:
The definition of the TTO (Time To Own) metric is also modified to take into account the “dispatched” state (The Time To Own stops when the ticket is actually assigned to a Person, not only dispatched to a Team).

This extension has no specific configuration setting.
The new dispatched state is fully integrated with the life-cycle of the ticket. For example, when creating a new User Request, an extra button “Dispatch to a team” appears:
On an User Request in state new, the action “Dispatch to a team..” is available in the drop-down list of actions.
A user must have either the profile “Service Desk Agent” or “Support Agent” (or Administrator) to be allowed to dispatch a ticket.
