Reassign Journals

Reassign Journals helps you "merge" cases by copying journal notes from one incident to another, and then it closes the redundant ticket. It will also open up the merged ticket for you so you can continue to work on it. Just like the SPAM ticket, this action is not reversible, so make sure you double-check the ticket number. To use this one-step:

  1. Verify you have the correct destination incident number.
  2. View the ticket you want to close.
  3. Click the "Reassign Journals" one-step

  5. Enter in the destination Incident number and click "OK".

Remove Data Request

Remove Data Request is used if there is any sensitive information present in a Cherwell case, such as birth date or Campus ID number. This sends an alert to a Cherwell administrator who is then able to manually purge any sensitive information from the case. To use this one-step, select "Remove Data Request" and it will automatically send out the request and leave a journal note indicating that the request was made.
