Audience: Client Intake Coordinator, Mentor
When a client submits a mentoring request, the request is automatically sent to the client intake queue. The client intake coordinator will need to go into the client intake queue to assign incoming requests. Additionally, the request will remain in the queue until a mentoring session is entered to allow the client intake coordinator to monitor the progress of each request and follow-up if time elapses and there is no movement with the request. This article is focused on viewing mentoring requests in Engage, assigning and reassigning requests to a mentor and monitoring the progress of assigned requests.
